Ghisallo Cycling Initiative is a local nonprofit that focuses on working with at risk youth to train and empower them as cyclist in their neighborhood. Here's a little bit about each of our programs:
Bike Clubs: After school program where we provide bikes and ride with students to area destinations such as parks and rec centers, teaching and encouraging safe riding along the way
Earn-a-Bike Program/ Bike Shop: Bike shop housed in the Boys & Girls Club where youth can earn a bike for working in the shop
Community Bike Hubs: Shipping Containers that are outfitted to serve as a bike shop & bike storage space so that groups may check out bikes
Bike Rodeos: Bike safety Clinics during PE time at area schools
Golden Rollers : Provides an opportunity for adults aged 50 and older to engage in low-impact, tricycle-based recreation, exploration, and transportation
