Bike Assembly and Safety
Through GCYP, each participant will learn how to build, maintain, and ride safely around the city. Upon completion of the program, youth will get to the keep the bikes they built from scratch, thanks to the Department of Transportation and their citywide bike distribution program!
With their newly built bikes and safety training, participants are ready to explore the city! Led by their instructors, groups visit different sustainable organizations, community gardens, and public areas within their own communities. Some common trip locations include The Garfield Park Conservatory, The Plant and Chicago Center for Green Technology.
