Educate the recipients of donated bicycles about bicycle safety using instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
Just giving away bicycles to people who struggle to afford one is not enough to ensure their safe and effective use.
The moment when a client receives a bicycle affords a unique touch point to enroll them in the rules of the road for safe cycling and tips about riding in traffic with other vehicles.
Our organization seeks to reach people in ways that encourage them to make cycling a part of their lifestyle and a primary transportation choice. The long term impacts include better health and fitness, greater mobility, reduced congestion and pollution.
