Teaching young participants bike safety as well as refining biking skills in a hands-on setting.
Remember the freedom and independence you felt the first time you rode a bike? The Y understands bicycles are a useful tool in helping youth grow, explore and even build community. Our YBike participants not only learn how to safely navigate the streets, but they also learn about their local community.
Led by caring and professional adults, YBike engages thousands of participants each year, transforming youth into active outdoor enthusiasts, skilled cyclists, and more confident young adults.
