Cycles of Change is a bicycle education program aimed at reversing the root causes of youth violence. In introducing a dual-component program of mechanics workshops and bicycle-based adventures, our mission is to promote cycling as a primary means of safe, enjoyable, accessible, inexpensive, healthy, and sustainable transportation for as many area residents as possible. Cycles operates in Middle School sites in Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, and Union City -- engaging neighborhood youth with its exciting program of adventure rides and hands-on mechanics, providing beginners’ ride safety training, advanced bicycle adventures, bicycle restoration workshops, and environmental science programs for hundreds of East Bay youth.

If you cannot attend, they are also looking for donations of tools, kids bikes, and other items. These are tax deductible, and can be given to me to deliver. Also a great place to volunteer if you live in the area.
