St. Louis Bicycle Works

The primary objective of the St. Louis Bicycle Works is to increase the probability of positive life outcomes for "at-risk" youths in the St. Louis, Missouri area. This is accomplished by providing them the incentive and opportunity to develop their academic, vocational, and social skills through our Earn-A-Bike Program.

The St. Louis Bicycle Works gives youths a place to develop skills, interact with peers and caring adults, and safely challenge the limits of their abilities. The primary focus is the Earn-A-Bike program, in which children are taught the basics about bicycle safety and maintenance as a means to build community awareness and personal responsibility. This is a free program where kids attend a series of hands-on courses held on Saturday mornings. Youths who complete the course graduate with knowledge about bicycles, skills to work as an individual as well as cohesively with a group, and a better understanding of personal safety. Graduating youths earn their own bike, helmet, light, and lock, and participate in a group safety ride with adults and peers.To date, over 10,000 bikes have been provided to inner city kids through this program.
