Summer 2019

 

Detailed week overview:

Maintenance Mondays

Mondays.  The start of each week.  What better way to start the week then to show your bike a little love?  The kids can sleep in and come to the shop at noon each Monday for a FREE lunch meal followed by Open Shop Time from 1-4 pm.  Don’t have a bike yet?  Come in and pick one out as part of the CBC’s Earn-A-Bike program!  Kids can also come in on these days and pick up a CBC Passport or just hang out at the shop and play some games!   

Rise & Shine Tuesdays 

Tuesdays are all about getting kids on bikes and outside.  Join us for a new outdoor adventure by bike each week as we journey to exotic local beaches or along the Eastern Trail for a fresh dose of sunny trail riding adventures.  Ride as a “stoker” on a tandem bike or on one of the CBC’s many shop bikes.  Don’t forget about doing your ABC Quick Checks before the ride!  Helmets, bicycle water bottles or water source, a snack, and sunblock are required for these rides!

We’ll be back at the CBC in time for a FREE lunch meal followed by Open Shop Time from 1-4 pm.  

 Mountain and Fat Bike Wednesdays

 Wednesday afternoons are all about getting out on local trails.  Fat bikes, mountain bikes, trail bikes – we’re going to explore some of the awesome riding available to us and learn some riding techniques and trail maintenance fundamentals to keep you rolling all summer long!  Helmets, bicycle water bottles or water source, a snack, and sunblock are required for these rides!

Rise & Shine Thursdays

These rides are just like Tuesday only a new destination each week too! Join us for a new outdoor adventure by bike each week as we journey to exotic local beaches or along the Eastern Trail for a fresh dose of sunny trail riding adventures.  Ride as a “stoker” on a tandem bike or on one of the CBC’s many shop bikes.  Don’t forget about doing your ABC Quick Checks before the ride!  Helmets, bicycle water bottles or water source, a snack, and sunblock are required for these rides!

youth programs

 

The Community Bicycle Center recognizes that each child walks through our door with a special set of life struggles, strengths, and sparks that need nourishment. We also believe that every child—and adult volunteer mentors—seeks connection to grow. Our current programs provide the framework for personal growth. The staff, volunteers, peer-to-peer mentors and community we create ensures that youth thrive.
