Help support community bike programs!!
I’m so excited to be going on a bike tour in support of some amazing community bike programs, and I hope you’ll support me by making a donation!
This August, I’m riding 100 miles through the Bay Area with a community of riders who are supporting two great organizations. Cycles of Change and its community bike shop, the Bikery, provide affordable used bikes and teach bike mechanics to youth in the San Antonio/Fruitvale neighborhood in Oakland. The California Field School takes young people on adventure learning bike tours exploring social and environmental justice. I've committed to raising $1,500 - can you help me meet my goal?
I’m passionate about supporting these two organizations because they share a goal of connecting young people to the natural world by increasing access to bicycles, and I think that promoting biking is one of the most effective (and fun) tools to create stronger, more resilient communities.
I’ve seen first hand what a game changer it can be to get someone access to reliable transportation that also gets them outdoors. As participants in a recent California Field School trip said “I learned that I am capable of doing more than what I think I can.”
Can you help other young people realize their strength and get outdoors?
The funds raised for the California Field School will help launch Wheels Up!, a bike club that will encourage young women and gender non-conforming young people to explore the Bay Area on bicycles.
I've committed to raising $1,500 for this trip - anything you can donate would mean a lot to me, and everyone at Cycles of Change and the California Field School. Your donation and words of encouragement are deeply appreciated!!
