A People's bike shop... Bike Works has been working for kids, bikes, and community in the Rainier Valley [of Seattle] since 1996. Their programs invest in young people and encourage bicycling as a clean and healthy transportation alternative. I love their mission: "To build sustainable communities by educating youth and promoting bicycling. We teach young people how to fix bikes, reward them with their own set of wheels, and provide affordable bicycle services to the community. "
Kids, wheels, people, bicycling, families, community, helping, projects, teaching, fun, friendship... the list goes on. These folks are great and what a program!!.
