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!
Volunteer Mechanic Nights
Thank you to everyone who came out to wrench with us at the Good Life Community Bike Shop on December 2, 2014. In just a few hours we tuned up six pre-loved, community-donated bicycles that will go to youth graduating from our Earn-a-Bike program in January 2015. Join us next time!
Volunteer Mechanic Nights at the Good Life Community Bike Shop will take place on the first Tuesday of each month, the next night will be: January 6, 2015, 6:00-9:00pm
