Spring Earn-a-Bike Classes Begin in March
This March, Neighborhood Bike Works will teach an Earn a Bike class at Shepard Rec Center!
Earn-A-Bike is our popular flagship program. Over the course of 15 sessions, youth learn the basics of bike repair and maintenance, safe urban riding, and health and nutrition while refurbishing an abandoned bike. Students earn the very bikes they learn to repair by participating in the classes and thereby collecting credit we call hours. All graduates of the Earn-A-Bike program can continue to work in the shop, earning hours they can trade for more bikes, parts, and accessories, as well as participate in our many other more advanced programs. These programs are free to the participants, ages 8-17, as all costs are covered by Neighborhood Bike Works and partner organizations.
- Our North Philly Shop: 1426 West Susquehanna Avenue.
- Our 40th Street Shop: 3916 Locust Walk.
- Shepard Rec Center: 5700 Haverford Avenue
- Also, at schools and community centers around the city.
Throughout the school year. Programming is twice a week from 4-6 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the 40th Street shop and on Mondays and Wednesdays at North Philly. Each session lasts 8 weeks.
Free to participants at our shops. If you wish to have us come to present an Earn-A-Bike class at your school or community center, please contact us to discuss details and fees.
