The Spoke

is a free program for youth aged 12-17. Over the course of a 6- to 8-week program, participants learn how to repair and maintain a bike, from start to finish. Each participant leaves The Spoke with their very own bicycle!


Volunteers work with youth, providing mentorship while teaching skills. All sessions take place at our Bike Edmonton North Community Workshop.

All participants have the chance to become instructors in future sessions with other youth from the community.
