The Baltimore Bike Experience, an after-school bicycle mechanic program program that we run at Digital Harbor High School in Baltimore by Bikemore. In this program, high school students are given all the tools they need to ride a bicycle or become a bicycle mechanic. In fact, one of the students, Andre,has been hired part-time at Race Pace Bicycles in Federal Hill!
With donated old bikes, students are taught the mechanics of a bicycle and how to ride safely on the road, then given a helmet, lights, a lock, and the bicycle that they worked on in class. The students are incredibly enthusiastic and committed and given a safe and positive place to be after school one day per week. For most students Baltimore Bike Experience is a chance to learn real skills to use for fun, fitness, transportation, and EMPLOYMENT!
