Last year, Cycles for Change hosted the Youth Bike Summit in St. Paul, MN. This year, we are traveling to Washington, DC / Arlington, VA to attend the Summit! Help us get 8 youth and 2 adults to this 3-day, annual, national conference! The Youth Bike Summit includes keynote speakers, workshops, networking, and bike rides, all while learning, discussing, and building game plans around how youth are our future’s movement builders and how bikes are catalysts for social change. In April, you helped C4C raise half of the funds needed for this trip at the Youth Apprenticeship Silent Auction. Now, we need you to help us raise the other half of the funds.
YBS costs $650 per person.
Funding goes towards purchasing plane tickets ($300 each), Youth Bike Summit registration tickets ($35 each), hotel rooms ($100 a night), food, public transit, and educational sightseeing adventures including a visit to the National Museum of the American Indian.
Help us raise $3,325 by September 1, 2017!
If you want to see our youth apprentices in action, stop by our tent at Open Streets Franklin Ave on August 27 (we’ll be set up outside our new Minneapolis shop at Franklin and 26th). Our apprentices will be teaching you how to fix a flat and running a bike tune-up station. You can donate to the fundraiser there as well.
