Where youth come to bike, learn, and lead
The place where middle and high school youth come to bike, learn, and lead! We’ve been organizing youth programming since 2010 for young people to discover untold or little known history, better understand the importance of conservation, grow in their resilience to challenges and build the confidence to face the challenges head-on.
Every summer the youth in our Spoke'n Revolutions program cycle a tour of close to 700-miles over 2 weeks and study history and environmental education along the route. This year, due to Covid-19, the 2020 tour is going virtual, so all of us, young people and adults, can learn some of the untold history of people of color that we didn't learn in school during 1-hour lunch sessions. Come to one session or come to all of them!
In the spirit of resiliency we seek to cultivate in our young riders, we're taking the 2020 bike tour online.
