About Kids Building Bikes

Structured as an Earn A Bike program that is conducted in our mobile and facility-based classrooms, this 4-week program includes 8 class sessions covering bicycle maintenance, rider safety skills, and rules of the road. Working primarily with 4th-8th grade students, our instructors teach basic mechanical aptitude skills within a curriculum that also emphasizes lifelong employability skills such as problem solving, perseverance, self-confidence and independence.

During these class sessions many students are working with tools for the very first time and are introduced to STEM principles in a way they have not experienced before – lessons that may become an important part of the student’s career path in the future. This program is designed to get bikes into the hands of underserved youth as we help build a more sustainable, responsible, and inclusive cycling community – successful graduates earn a brand-new bicycle, helmet, lock & tool set to use for years to come.
