Take Back The Bike… Past Tense

To men, the bicycle in the beginning was merely a new toy, another machine added to the long list of devices they knew in their work and play. To women, it was a steed upon which they rode into a new world.” ~ Munsey’s Magazine, 1896

Thought I’d share how IMPORTANT i/WE feel ” women / trans / bikes ” is for us at Boston Square. Come out. Join. It’s important. YOU MATTER!

The Manifesto

Youth [L]Earn-a-Bike starts today

We are so excited about working with the students at Alger Middle School. Today is our first class of this school year and we’re very much looking forward to meeting the students. We have already spent some time and passed out fliers. There has already been a great response. A few hours of hard work and the bike will be theirs.
