Best Way to Get Kids Pumped About Bikes: Austin's Yellow Bike Project

YBP's all-volunteer staff donated nearly 100 bikes last year to Winn, Andrews, Blanton, and Harris elementary schools, located in the vicinity of its main shop. This year, with the help of an REI grant, volunteers are providing area students with free reconditioned bikes, along with lights and helmets, as part of the Bikes to Schools program. YBP is also teaching kids at Bedichek Middle School the nuts and bolts of bicycle repair and maintenance as part of the Citizen Schools program. In the ongoing aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, volunteers donated 62 kids' bikes to refugees living at East Austin's Huntington Meadows apartments – just a small part of larger citywide efforts that provided more than 300 bikes to Katrina victims.
