May is National Bike Month, an initiative to encourage individuals to get outdoors and enjoy the many benefits of cycling. In support of this movement, UGI has chosen Community Bike Works as this month’s Featured Community Organization.
For over 20 years, more than 3,500 students have participated in Community Bike Works programs to learn bike safety and mechanics while practicing reading, writing, and leadership skills. Through their Earn a Bike program, at-risk and inner-city students learn meaningful work ethic and teamwork as they work to build and refurbish bicycles that they keep at the program’s completion. Located in Allentown, Community Bike Works is open to all students through age 18 and programs are offered at no cost to families.
