Green Apron Program

Green Apron (Earn-a-Bike) is an introduction to Freewheelin’, bicycle maintenance, riding safety, and a culture of growth. Youth aged 10-18 learn-and-earn in this hands-on, entry-level course. Topics covered include:
  • Tool identification, use, and safety
  • Fixing a flat
  • Cleaning and lubricating a chain
  • Parts identification
  • Riding Safely on the Road in a Group
  • Inquiry based project learning

We focus on identifying strengths, creative problem-solving, persistence to improve, and empathy. Weather permitting, the course includes group rides to help connect the city and culminates in a hands-on test. By demonstrating they have learned the skills we teach in class, youth earn the bike they have been working on, a helmet, lock, light and the status of Green Apron.

Registration fee is $35.00.  This is part of your investment in your son or daughter’s participation in our program.
