This winter, CommonWheels is hosting our second season of Earn-A-Bike program, in collaboration with Charlesview, Inc. This program is specifically designed for women in the Allston-Brighton area. We will have two sessions, with the first beginning in January.
About the Women’s Earn-A-Bike Program
CommonWheels Bicycle Collective hosts Earn-A-Bike programs for women in the Allston-Brighton area. These program is designed to give women who lack financial access to a bicycle an opportunity to learn bike mechanics and maintenance while fixing up a bicycle that they will keep at the end of the program. Participants will be taught skills such as how to fix a flat tire, how to fix brakes, and how to fix problems inside your bike. We will also go on rides together. This program is free, but available spots are limited and participants must submit an application to be accepted into the program.
Participants who attend at least 5 of 6 sessions earn:
- a fully functional bicycle
- a helmet, lock, and lights
- training on maintaining, fixing, and riding your bicycle
