We are proud to be one of the sponsors of this event, and have been avid supporters of Recycle-A-Bicycle for years. In fact, several of our mechanics actually came up through their program, which works to teach students practical, hands-on skills to build both character and bikes.
Through RAB, kids learn to repair and restore bicycles (and often get paid for the work they do), as well as experience the broader benefit of getting more involved in their neighborhoods to better their community for both health and sustainability.
More about the Summit: Designed for students, educators and advocates in the cycling scene, the Summit seeks to equip participants from the tactical bicycle knowledge to the big picture topics such as fundraising and advocacy tools. One of our favorite cycling spokespersons, New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, will keynote on Saturday morning, followed by a handful of workshops and discussion groups.
