ABOUT TRIANGLE BIKEWORKS
Triangle Bikeworks’ (TBW) youth development programs provide challenging out-of-school activities that help prevent learning loss, develop youth leadership, and help build social-emotional learning competencies through three learning pathways: Cycling, Untold History, and Environmental Education.
TBW serves youth ages 11-18 who are Black and ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American).
We believe that if this group of teens have access to experiential learning opportunities through cycling;
If they uncover untold history that reflects a more holistic view of the struggles, resilience, and accomplishments of people who look like them;
And if they also explore and learn more about the natural world and take action for its protection, then they will
Whether it is through training and then cycling 700+ miles during two weeks of the Summer Experience Tour;
Doing the same for the smaller, three-day Spring and Fall Excursions;
Having a mountain biking experience visiting trail locations across the state of North Carolina;
Or leading community rides for health and connection, youth are learning more about themselves and their peers than most sports activities.
