A fun, resourceful and dynamic children and youth initiative we will rescue old, discarded and broken bikes learn to repair them and finally go on bike rides throughout Toronto & the G.T.A parks. Youth will learn the value of repairing and recycling “junk” while also learning bike mechanics. Once each participant has a functioning repaired bike youth will plan trips to take bike rides together touring parks outside of their respective neighborhoods.
