Created by Seashore Family Literacy as way to promote good health and recreation, the Green Bikes program provides bicycles for anyone to ride, any time, to any destination — no questions asked.

The premise is simple: Find a bike and use it for fun and transportation. When done, leave the bike in an accessible spot for the next rider. Adult and youth volunteers work together to restore and maintain over 100 community bicycles.

The Green Bike Repair Shop is led by adult volunteers who serve as role models emphasizing recreation, health and education. Volunteers with bicycle experience are encouraged to help others learn repair and maintenance skills.

The program provides tangible skills that offer a sense of pride and accomplishment. In addition, adult volunteers directly engage local youth to support a popular community program. In the News! Click here to read the story about this program.
