Non-profit bike programs

Harrison Law, secretary and vice president of SBI, and Walter.

Slowly but surely, Anchorage has grown a remarkable cycling community, including commuters, racers, winter bikers, and now inventors and manufacturers. Today, we’re learning about a couple of promising sprouts growing from that tree, programs started by leaders in the cycling world to help young people become fit, confident cyclists. In the first half of the show, Lael Wilcox, an amazing athlete of world caliber, will be talking about her adventure with middle school girls. In the second half, we’ll learn about a new bike school, which aims to teach bike repair skills, and to turn underprivileged kids into bike riders and racers.
