If you ever thought about bike touring and want support and community, join Bike Down 2019 (destination: Angel Island!) from this August 8-11, an annual bike trip to raise funds for Cycles of Change's community programs. This year will have even more support for riders to raise funds, great new views, and routes that pack a lot for beginner and advanced riders. Email bikedown@cyclesofchange.org and check back here for more details. We hope you will join us!

This year's Bike Down is benefiting three projects: The Bikery, Upcycle, and California Field School.

  • The Bikery is a friendly neighborhood community bike shop run by an all people of color collective of Oakland educators. We are committed to making bikes accessible to everyone. We offer a range of used bikes for sale, low cost repairs, youth internships, job training, classes and community events. We also have a community repair space where you can work on your own bike.
  • Our youth Earn-A-Bike and adult UpCycle programs are great opportunities for youth and adults to get a bike.
  • The California Field School takes young people on bike tours and backpacking trips through places that have been pivotal in California history. By connecting with California’s diverse communities and landscapes, and exploring social and environmental justice issues past and present, participants will gain an unparalleled understanding of their place within the story of California - and the leadership skills and confidence to write the next chapter of that story on their own.
