About this event

BWorks Earn-A-Bike is a free, hands-on class that teaches basic bicycle maintenance and safety while fostering important life skills including communication, teamwork and responsibility to children ages 8-17 who can already ride a bike. After completing a consecutive series of six (two-hour) classes, participants earn a refurbished bicycle and brand-new helmet, light set and lock.

Students who commit to this series will meet with our dedicated staff and volunteer instructors for six Saturday afternoons, beginning each week at 12:30 p.m. (with each class ending at 2:30 p.m.). The first class meeting is Saturday, October 22, and graduation day (the final class, which includes a graduation ride on the students’ newly earned bikes!) will be Saturday, December 3. Students must attend all six consecutive classes to earn their bike. (NOTE: Due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, there is no class November 26.)

Classes take place at St. Louis BWorks, located in Soulard at 2414 Menard Street, St. Louis, MO 63104.

Requirements for this course:

1) To participate in this class, students must already be able to ride a bicycle comfortably on their own — without assistance or training wheels. (We regularly offer a separate course for students ages 8 to 17 who do not yet know how to ride a bike, called Learn-To-Ride. If your child cannot yet ride, please reach out to evie@bworks.org so she can get you on our waitlist for that other course rather than this one.)

2) A parent/guardian must attend the first 20 minutes of the first of the six classes. We also limit each family to two registrants per session, and students must be between the ages of 8-17.

Note: Mask wearing is still encouraged and much appreciated when inside BWorks, but not required.
