COMMUNITY BIKE WORKSHOP

SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL PROGRAM
GObike manages a Safe Routes to School Program that works with parents, schools and government agencies to improve the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school.
The program conducts projects around schools that improve safety and accessibility for kids. These programs make walking and bicycling safer and more appealing transportation choices, and therefore help encourage a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age. For more information, click here.
RECYCLE A BICYCLE PROGRAM
GObike’s Recycle a Bicycle Program is an initiative for at-risk youth within Buffalo.
