In April we hosted our first Bike Clinic, a week-long course that brought together an amazing group of community-minded volunteers, mentors, and students. Each student, working with a professional bike mechanic, repaired several bikes donated by the community -- one of which they kept as their own. The surplus bikes will be sold to raise funds to purchase CYCLE Kids workbooks for the next class of new riders.

We were honored to have six dedicated supporters fundraising for our mission and running in CYCLE Kids bibs in the 2012 Boston Marathon! Their example both supports and inspires our mission, and their passion will help make positive and lifelong changes in the health of our children -- everywhere!

CYCLE Kids graduates will learn to repair bikes during this hands-on, week-long camp! Each student will repair three bikes donated by members of the community; they get to keep one bike as their own, and the others will be sold to raise funds to purchase CYCLE Kids workbooks for the next class of new riders.

Four years ago, Alison Cohen had no idea that starting a bike share company would result in a partnership between her company, Alta Bicycle Share and the City of Boston, which would lead to a citywide biking revolution called the Hubway. Alison’s involvement with the cycling community is various and deep, and she has been an instrumental figure in CYCLE Kids.

“Natural” is the word that comes to mind when president and founder, Larry O’Toole, talks about his decision to incorporate charitable work into the culture at Gentle Giant Moving Company. Larry believes every business should be involved in making the world a better place -- it should be as routine as processing payroll or scheduling hours. In 2005, Larry and his team established the Gentle Giant Charitable Foundation to strengthen their community involvement.

What an extraordinary day for the CYCLE Kids Boston Marathon Team to run this 115th race! Blue skies, perfect temperatures, and a historic skyline backdrop set the scene as the team proudly geared up in their CYCLE Kids singlets, adjusted the laces on their sneakers, and prepared for the big run. Each runner looked strong and determined as they traversed the route bordered by 26.2 miles of bustling Boston pride.
