Cambridge Community Bike-build Held to Kick off New Programs

To start up seven new programs in Cambridge Public Schools, CYCLE Kids hosted a Community Bike Build event. Eager CYCLE Kids supporters and veterans, mechanics from Belmont Wheelworks, plus volunteers from Starbucks, American Express Travel, Gentle Giant, the Cambridge Police Department, John Kerry’s office, and Launch Squad PR came together to help build 70 bikes to be used as part of our curriculum that teaches kids the skills and knowledge to lead active and healthy lives. After a brief demonstration on proper bike assembly, the volunteers and students scattered around the gym and began building in teams. The event was so successful all 70 bikes were built, tuned, and mechanic-approved by lunch. What a motivated group of volunteers!

We’d like to thank the residents and businesses of Cambridge who gave so generously in response to our Cambridge Funds for Cambridge Kids campaign. With a critical matching grant from the Weezie Foundation and support from Specialized, we are proud and excited to be expanding our programming!
