Our core programming, is an educational after-school program that teaches basic bicycle building, mechanics and safety skills to youth.

So far, over 150 participants have gone through Charlie’s FreeWheels Build- A-Bike programming. All participants complete the program with a bike they have built themselves, a new lock, a helmet and the skills and tools they need to safely ride and maintain their bicycles for a lifetime to come. Youth are only able to keep their bicycles if they have attended a mandatory workshop on safe cycling.
