A big thanks and shout-out to Austin Yellow Bike for helping make sure our Earn-A-Bike and Maintenance Program at Boys and Girls Club has plenty of kids bikes for the students to work on. We had a trailer of 23 adult sized bikes and bikes with too few parts for us to be able to get running which we dropped off at Yellow Bike’s shop at 1216 Webberville Rd. They then loaded us up with 19 parts complete youth bikes!
A bunch of our previous participants helped unload the bikes and new students have begun signing up to earn their own bike over three weeks sessions. During the classes they will learn to do basic maintenance and repairs and develop sweat equity so they earn and value their new bike.
