Positively Thrilled: Announcing Our Newest Program

Positive Spin Kids Cheezin

We’re Taking On Positive Spin!

For years you, our members and supporters, asked us to focus more heavily on education. Last year we launched our on-the-bike training program City Cycling, offering low-cost, classes to teach adults (ages 15 and up) to ride in the city.

Now we’re scaling up our education offerings with the introduction Positive Spin, a summer youth cycling program, beginning on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. We have a great group of 91 middle schoolers who will participate this year!

About Positive Spin

Positive Spin is designed to teach middle schooler how to operate bikes safely and navigate through city streets, trails, and parks. The program aims to engage, motivate, and empower under-resourced youth to create positive community change through exercise, education, and advocacy.

For four years, Positive Spin was run by our friends at MGR Youth Empowerment. This year Positive Spin will operate as a program of BikePGH within our growing education program.

We’re so thrilled to spend this summer teaching and learning from these young people!

If you have any questions about this program, please direct them to Julie Mallis, the program’s manager, by emailing positivespin@bikepgh.org.

Positive Spin was made possible, in part, by support from a Neighborhood Allies’ Simple and Small grant.
