Community Bike Works is coming to Easton! As of the summer of 2021, we will offer Earn a Bike and cycling programs in Easton's West Ward. This bike shop will be our third, following our two Allentown shops, and we are thrilled to more fully engage youth across the Lehigh Valley.
We are grateful to partners including the City of Easton, the Greater Easton Development Partnership, and Air Products. We can't wait to be in Easton!
Watch this New Year greeting from Paris, a high school junior and first-year Community Bike Works student, and read her letter to supporters:
"2020 was not what I expected my junior year of high school to look like. It’s been a lot of ups and downs...Thank you for being a part of Community Bike Works and helping to make kids’ days better, especially this year."
During this public health crisis, we are here to help! If you are a Bike Works family who needs help accessing food or other resources, please call us at 610.434.1140.
Since COVID, we have offered both online and modified in-person classes. However, ALL classes are currently online. In March 2021, we will attempt to resume our modified outdoor classes. Our COVID safety plan is here:
Give that old bike in your basement a new life--donate it to Community Bike Works. We take any bike in any condition!
WE ARE ONCE AGAIN ACCEPTING BIKE DONATIONS! Bikes can be dropped off at either bike shop from noon-4 pm Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, by appointment only.
Each year, 500 youth participate in Earn a Bike and Junior Earn a Bike. 90% of students complete the program to earn their refurbished bike and a helmet.
Bike mentoring may help students feel more engaged at school. Of students at a United Way community school, 72% improved or maintained their school attendance in the year!
In 2020-2021, Community Bike Works will celebrate 25 years of our flagship Earn a Bike program.
In 25 years, we have engaged more than 5,000 young people in youth bike mentoring. Thanks to your support, we a ready to engage a new generation.
We are revising our plans for celebrating in light of the public health crisis. Details to come!
During this time that we can't meet in person, let students Joshua and Anaya show you around our Madison Street bike shop and tell you why they enjoy Community Bike Works!
With your support, Community Bike Works can connect more than 500 young people each year with mentors to learn bike mechanics, safety, and other life skills.
Thank you for your gift!
