Phoenix Bikes conducts twelve-week Earn-A-Bike programs at schools, apartment complexes and community centers for majority underserved populations. Youth mechanics spend the first nine weeks learning basic skills at their site. For the last four sessions, they’re transported to our shop to build their very own bike.
