Bicycle Therapy is proud to help sponsor The Works, Vol. II: a ride/race held in the city and with all proceeds going to support Neighborhood Bike Works, one of our absolute favorite local non-profits.

If you’re not already familiar with Neighborhood Bike Works, you really should be. Here’s what they do:

“The Mission of Neighborhood Bike Works is to increase opportunities for urban youth in underserved neighborhoods in greater Philadelphia by offering educational, recreational, and career-building opportunities through bicycling; it also promotes cycling as a healthy, affordable, environment-friendly form of transportation.” 

How cool is that? From their after-school programs, to their summer camp, to their employment opportunities for young people, to their work in the cycling community and beyond, NBW is a great organization and they deserve our support. We might be a little biased – both Andy and Toby used to work there – but can you blame us?

Long story short, if you support cycling and kids, and you’re looking for a something fun to do on May 5th, check out the race, the ride, the after party, and support NBW in the process.
