Youth Empowerment Program

Attention kids ages 11-13! Join us at NBP!

FUN, BIKE RIDES, EXPLORATION, AND COMMUNITY SERVICE

The Newark Bike Project works toward sustainability through community, education and empowerment. Youth program activities include learning bike maintenance and skills, fun rides, and community service projects. If you are registering more than one child, please submit a separate registration for each participant.

We will be offering three sessions and content will vary so feel free to join us for one or more session! The sessions are designed to build the child’s bicycle riding comfort and skills throughout the summer, with June featuring short, easy rides, July medium rides, and August faster, longer trips. Activities will vary for each session, so experienced cyclists may still enjoy the June session. Likewise, beginner riders will likely feel comfortable with the August activities if they have taken part in the earlier sessions.

  • Choose from three Monday-Thursday sessions from 9 – 11:30 a.m.
    • Camp 1, June 15-18 – Beginner Riders able to ride 3 miles – CANCELLED
    • Camp 2, July 20-23 — Intermediate Riders able to ride 5 miles – SOLD OUT
    • Camp 3, August 10-13 — Experienced Riders able to ride 8 miles – WAITING LIST
  • Community service & bike-related activities
  • Only $50 per session! Scholarships upon request.
  • Bring your Bike, water & helmet to join the fun! Inquire ahead if you’d like to borrow a bike for the program.
  • Youth will be expected to follow enhanced physical distancing/hygiene procedures and may not participate if they are ill or have recently been around someone who has COVID-19 symptoms.
