bicycle recycle project – nevada city, ca

I stumbled across this great project entitled “Bicycle Recycle Project” its mission to reduce, reuse and rebuild, which I am a big supporter of, is a “service learning project where students learn hands-on the basics of bicycle mechanics”. It is located at Seven Hills Middle School in Nevada City, California and not only teaches the students about the mechanics of bicycles, but allows the students to participate in many outreaches, such as a mobile bike shop, where students provide bike repair at various bicycle events. As well, the project offers after-school programs for students “with nothing to do”, they teach about recycling and the environment with the Reduce, Reuse and Rebuild teaching the students about self-sufficiencies. Yet another outreach is Bike Day at Loaves and Fishes. This gives the students the ability to help the guests of the charitable organization that feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless by offering free maintenance on their bicycles. Finally, they have organized a bike club that the students participate in. How can you participate? The Bicycle Recycle Project welcomes volunteers, bicycles and tools.
