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!

Sibley Bike Depot is Cycles for Change
Sibley Bike Depot is now Cycles for Change! After considering more than 100 different new name suggestions over the winter, the organization chose Cycles for Change (C4C) as a name that more closely embodies the organization’s continuing vision for utilizing the bicycle as a tool for community building, sustainability, leadership development, and progressive social change. We understand that this change will take some time to get used to. Please help spread the word by telling your family, friends and colleagues about the name change!
