Our partner, the Y (YMCA), has invited us to bring our Bike Club curriculum to students in West Tulsa (from the Webster feeder schools) in 2013, Skelly (from the Hale and East Central feeder schools) in 2014, and Wright Elementary in 2015. Each summer for four weeks, our staff and volunteers work with 200 K-6th grade students five days a week, sharing all of the fun and learning our vast toolbox includes. Many students from the Robertson site got to keep their bikes, and with the sponsorship of Humble Sons’ Bike Company in 2014-15, 400 students from the Skelly and Wright sites got to keep a new bike and helmet at the close of the program. You can find us at Gilcrease Elementary in North Tulsa in Summer 2016.
