This September, The Third Hand Bike Co-Op is partnering with the Cap City Transit Coalition and the Mason Unit of the Salesian Boys and Girls Club to offer a Bike Club as part of the Mason Unit’s after-school programming. The youth participating in the Earn-a-Bike program will earn a recycled bicycle and a helmet by earning credit through attending workshops on basic bike maintenance, bike repair skills and bike safety. The Bike Club youths will also learn about map reading and bike safety on group outings into the community and on local bike paths. This is the first program to be put on by The Third Hand Bike Co-op. To lend financial or volunteer help, or to donate an “un”used bike to the Co-op, contact Jason at 614-222-8933 or
