Bicycle Maintenance & Repair
Active transportation affords greater health and freedom and at “The Bike Shop Program” our youth learn the skills and confidence needed to ride safely through this hallmark program. This engaging experience introduces the basics of bicycle maintenance and repair, developing a sense of accomplishment and capability in our youth.
Our participants are taught by a trained bicycle mechanic and use modern equipment and tools, designed especially for working on bikes. Vocational skills and creativity are sure to blossom in each student as they build bikes from the frame up, and maybe even build a unique cycling “contraption”!
Every program at Youth Opportunities Unlimited begins with safety, fun, and education (in that order), and this unique experience is no exception. Don’t be surprised the next time you find yourself broken down along the bike path if it’s an alumnus of Y.O.U. who pulls over to get you back on the road!
