Community Bike Works Gala 2014

Join us for Gearing Up for the Future!

Save the Date! You are invited to join Community Bike Works on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 06:00 pm, at Coca-Cola Park (club level) for Gearing Up for the Future. The event will celebrate the young people of Community Bike Works and honor retiring founder Stefan Goslowski.

Funds raised through the event will offer enhanced opportunities for the young leaders of Community Bike Works. These students graduate from the flagship Earn a Bike program and then continue their Bike Works experience spending additional time with mentors and serving as peer role models and instructors.

Tickets are available now at: Bike Works Gearing Up Tickets

Community Bike Works was conceived by Allentown residents with backgrounds in education, drug abuse prevention, vocational training, mechanics, business, and community action. Community Bike Works develops and uses peer role models, adult mentors, and bicycles to draw boys and girls, ages 9 to 17, into the program and away from drugs, crime, and the streets. We use bicycles, peer role models and adult mentors to engage youth; and once engaged, influence their behavior and their outlook about school and life.

Kids learn mechanics, develop business skills, commitment and responsibilities, and improve their employability.

Kids even earn a recycled bike and new helmet for their efforts.

Community Bike Works made our national TV debut in the fall of 2012 on country music star Trace Adkins' show Great American Heroes. Watch the clip here!

We always need bikes, especially boys' 20-inch bikes. To donate a bike, please call (610) 434-1140.

Community Bike Works thanks our supporters, including:
