About me:
Blackstone Bicycle Works (BBW) is the youth education program of the Experimental Station, and a community bicycle shop located in Woodlawn. BBW's mission is to provide educational and recreational opportunities to local boys and girls (ages 9 and up) in the context of a retail community bike shop. Our year-round, summer, after-school and Saturday program offers participating youth training in bicycle safety, mechanics and repair, customer service, and entrepreneurial skills. BBW allows program participants to earn as they learn. By volunteering in the shop's repair and maintenance services, participants earn credits that they may exchange for bicycles, parts, and accessories. Through models of working and guidelines for behavior, BBW fosters an understanding of the expectations, responsibilities, and rewards of the work environment. BBW is also a lot of fun. We organize special events such as rides, competitions, and field trips. Through BBW, youth participants also have the opportunity to provide support services for city and privately sponsored bike rides.
