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

  1. Develop a deeper appreciation for the importance and value of natural spaces;
  2. They will develop healthy identities in relation to others; and
  3. They will gain richer background knowledge and experiences. These three outcomes are foundational for a youths’ success in school and in life.

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.
