Bikes N' Roses

Through a new youth-led bike cooperative APNC youth leaders are creating leadership and job opportunities for youth in our community by teaching professional skills like bicycle maintenance and repair. In its effort to promote biking as a cleaner cheaper mode of transit, Bikes N' Roses will hold regular mobile bike clinics at local parks and community institutions to teach cyclists how to repair their own bicycles.

Bikes N’ Roses es una organización sin fines de lucro dirigida por jóvenes en Albany Park que está trabajando en crear una comunidad más saludable y feliz mediante el uso de bicicletas.

LA MISION

    Bikes N’ Roses es una organización sin fines de lucro dirigida por jovenes en Albany Park que está trabajando en crear una comunidad más saludable y feliz mediante el uso de bicicletas en lugar de carros. Nosotros creemos que andar en bicicletas es bueno para la salud, tu cartera, Y el medio ambiente. Andar en bicicleta puede ser tu principal medio de transporte. Bikes and Roses se dedica a enseñar a la gente como andar en bicicleta puede beneficiarlos y a toda la comunidad de Albany Park.

General Information

Bikes N’ Roses is promoting cycling in the Albany Park community in many different ways:

Job Opportunities

Bikes N’ Roses participates in the state’s Summer Youth Employment Program.  This gives us the opportunity to hire 15 youth between ages 16 and 21 years, and train them to spread the knowledge and love of cycling.

Community Rides and Outreach Events

Bikes N’ Roses wants to show people that biking is a fun, healthy activity that you can do with others. Bikes N’ Roses will hold community bike rides, outreach events to get people active and out into the streets on their bikes.

Bike Repair Clinics

Bikes N’ Roses will provide the tools and the know-how. Anyone from the community who has a bike in need of repair will learn how to fix it with the guidance of our trained mechanics. You will ride away with a bike that works and with the confidence of knowing how to fix it properly.  Enroll today for our 2 week summer youth mechanic course for the ages of 15-21.  Adult classes expected to begin in the fall.

Youth Safe Haven

Providing an open proactive environment for youth to grow and learn by expression through mechanical technique, and the fine arts.
