Bike-a-Thon Fundraiser and Cook-out 2015!

Because of the rain, the Bike-a-thon and cook-out is re-scheduled for Saturday, June 20.
C4C’s annual Bike-a-Thon is fast approaching--Saturday, June 13! Bike-a-Thon is one of our favorite ways to fundraise, meet the people who are excited about the work we do, and get out and enjoy the Minnesota summer! Bike-a-Thon asks riders to pledge a set amount to ride that goes towards our shop programming and supports our mission of building a diverse and empowered community of cyclists.  

Cycles for Change has a $10,000 matching grant from the Pohlad foundation that we need to earn by raising $10,000 from individual donors.  Every dollar donated during the Bike-a-Thon will count toward earning that match!

NOTE! The event is still scheduled for this Saturday, June 13 but we have extended the fundraising deadline to June 20!

New Video about Our Bike Library Program: Aprendiendo a Pedalear (Learning to Pedal)

The woman in the above video learned how to ride a bicycle through the Community Partners Bike Library's Learn to Ride programming over the summer! Here, she speaks about her motivation for learning to ride, how she has gained confidence by practicing, and the positive impacts of learning something new. It's a beautiful story! (Spanish, with English subtitles.)
