It Takes A Village

Working for the positive development of youth is our guiding mission. You and We are that Village.

Dream Staff

Kevin Hicks

Founder & Vol. Executive Director

Kevin knows that one small nonprofit program in North Carolina may only affect a dozen or so youth every year. But he likes the starfish parable, in which a beachgoer is throwing stranded starfish back into the sea and another person points out how one person can’t possibly save all of the starfish. “But it makes a difference to the ones I threw back,” the beachgoer responds. “I just plant the seed,” Kevin says.


“I believe bikes are your first introduction to freedom.”

Itza Salazar

Program Manager

Itza Salazar was one of original seven students who participated in Triangle Bikeworks’ pilot program in 2010. Before her first excursion with the group, she was unaware that national and state parks were open to the public. Several years later, the organization was excited to hire Itza as its Program Director.

Lynn Weller

P/T Development Manager

Lynn joined Triangle Bikeworks upon excellent recommendation. She’s an innovative problem-solver with versatile program management, development, and communications expertise. Lynn brings her nonprofit expertise and love of cycling to benefit the organization.

Sadie Richey

AmeriCorps NC Afterschool VISTA

Sadie is serving as our AmeriCorps NC Compus Compact Afterschool Corps VISTA. She graduated in May of 2020 from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Religious Studies, and hopes to one day work in Higher Education to provide more equitable opportunities for everyone to receive a quality education. Sadie is working to build the capacity of TBW by developing community partnerships, mobilizing volunteers, and designing organizational systems to increase the organization’s presence in the community.

OUR  BOARD OF DIRECTORS

What is our vision for the long ride?

The analogy of the long ride is intentional. Before leaving for a long ride you must have a destination and a plan when you get there. At Triangle Bikeworks we know exactly where we’re going and what we’ll do when we get there.

When there is no more work to do youth will have the opportunity to develop physically, socially, and academically to their full potential, regardless of their background, resources, and opportunity.

“I was able to see what most people wouldn’t see. I was able to learn what people wouldn’t learn because it’s a hidden treasure that school tries to cover up.” ~ SpokenRev Youth
