Two Wheel View (TWV) creates opportunities for young people to learn and practice lessons in leadership, health and wellness, self-esteem, achievement and environmental stewardship through bicycle education programs and expeditions.
Bicycle education: The Earn-a-Bike after school BIke Club program uses the bicycle as a tool to develop leadership and teamwork skills as well as bike mechanic capabilities in youth ages 11-17. Students who complete the program earn a community donated, recycled bicycle of their own, along with a brand new lock and helmet.
Bike Trips and Expeditions: TWV offers adventurous and educational travel experiences for youth 14-17 years old, school groups, families and individuals. TWV cycling expeditions are one to two weeks in Argentina, Norway, Quebec and western Canada’s mountain parks. On these trips, participants become attuned to the local culture, assume new levels of personal responsibility and gain – literally – the experience of a lifetime!
Scavenger Hunt at Cyclepalooza
Two Wheel View is hosting a 10-day long scavenger hunt as part of Cyclepalooza. Use these points to get out on your bike by yourself, with friends or family between June 26th and July 6th. Those who successfully complete the scavenger hunt will be entered to win a small prize. We will have celebrity judges who will pick winners for the three grand prizes of most creative, youth participation and best team/family photos. Don't worry if you are not familiar with Cyclepalooza or Two Wheel View. Anyone can enter and we love to see new faces! read more...
