We're biking 63 miles to raise money for Cycles for Change’s youth programming, that engages participants to become community bike advocates
Liz and JP will be riding 63 miles to and from an organic farm in Wisconsin with six YFMP high school aged Project LEAD youth (as well as a lot of other cool people supporting Cycles for Change). A total of 6 Youth Farm Project LEAD will be coming on the bike trip from Lyndale and Hawthorne neighborhoods will be joining us on the ride, and we are excited to support Cycle for Change.
Cycle for Change's innovative Junior Mechanics and Youth Apprenticeship programs teach youth bike repair skills, and builds leadership and community engagement skills around sustainable transportation and bicycle advocacy.
Cycles for Change supports Youth Farm's youth in many ways, including through the Community Partners Bike Library program and by donating repaired bikes for Youth Farm's summer biking focus groups.
The ride is a fundraiser and awareness raising event for Cycles for Change, and we'd love for folks to support us and help us reach our fundraising goal!
