BUILD IT. EARN IT. RIDE IT.
Geared for middle school and high school aged kids, this 5-day (10 hour) STEM-based course, aligned with Colorado state standards, teaches participants about the bicycle as a simple machine—how it works, how to repair it and how to ride safely. Instructors place an emphasis on teaching valuable life skills along the way. Upon completion of the multi-session course, graduates receive their own bike, a new helmet, lock and tool kit.
This fun, experiential program offers excellent instruction plus an exciting goal for every kid—to earn the bike they work on. The course uses STEM-based curriculum and a positive development approach to provide youth with the opportunity to learn and master the technical skills of building a bike and riding competently. Instructors also use this time to teach life skills such as leadership, responsibility and relationship-building. In the end, youth know they’ve earned their new bike through hard work, perseverance and follow-through.
