GIRLS IN ACTION! bike program
May 18th – June 22nd
Monday through Friday, 3:30 – 6:30pm each day

Girls ages 12-18 have the opportunity to engage in an interactive bicycle mechanics, bicycle riding safety, and gender equity social justice curriculum. This course is an excellent way for girls to gain skills and make friends in the rich community of female cyclists and mechanics at Bikes Not Bombs. Program graduates ride away on their very own refurbished bicycles! Just like Earn-A-Bike, graduates of this class may eventually qualify for a part-time teaching and leadership job in our youth programs. For girls only. Classes run Mon-Thurs, 3:30 – 6:30. Program cost is $25-$50 sliding scale for the whole session (scholarships available).
