A-B bikes is assisting with soliciting donations of bikes and helmets for some youth programming planned for the fall at Edison Middle School in Brighton Center. If you are interested in donating or helping to solicit donations, please post a comment here or contact Chris R. directly at the email provided below. Thanks!
The program is a 10 week “apprenticeship” which will meet once a week for an hour and a half in the afternoon. Over the course of the 10 weeks the students will learn bike repair, bike safety, explore safe bike routes around Brighton, find bike racks and finish off by creating a book for other students in and around Brighton that will showcase the skills they have learned. The program runs from late September through Early December so right now there is still a lot of time before too many wheels need to be turning, but I am working on soliciting some bikes (in any condition) and helmets.
