Apply now to earn $450 towards a new bicycle! The Earn-a-Bike program seeks to increase bicycle ridership, reduce car trips, and help swap vehicle trips for bicycle trips.

This free 14-hour course covers topics in three main areas: bike maintenance, bike handling, and traffic skills. It includes both classroom lessons and bike riding on city streets.
