Student participants at Oakland and the East Bay schools make valuable connections to local resources and their environment by participating in our after-school bike clubs. School children at various public schools are given the opportunity to learn how to ride safely in our Safe Routes to Schools program. At our community bike shops, anyone can volunteer in the shop to earn-a-bike. School gardens connect youth with the natural environment, their food, and with each other.
Cycles of Change creates healthier East Bay communities by helping youth and adults gain tools for more environmentally and economically sustainable living through school-based bicycle education, job training, watershed education, and community earn-a-bike programs. By exploring our neighborhoods and beyond on bicycles, we are more connected to the people and the land that sustain us.
