    Start/Finish:

    Cycles for Change

    712 University Ave W

    Saint Paul

    Come and enjoy this fun mountaineering themed scavenger-hunt-bike-ride around St. Paul to support Cycle for Change’s Youth Apprentices in their quest to attend the Youth Bike Summit in NYC this February. The route will be a choose-your-own-adventure 5 mile excursion through the city, stopping at local attractions. Team up for fun with friends and family to win great prizes! Participating mountaineers will outfit themselves for survival, plot their routes up treacherous peaks, encounter a Yeti, and record their journeys with trail markings and poetry. Some will survive, others will drink hot coco.

    Participating in this event will help C4C’s Youth Apprentices to attend the Recycle-A-Bicycle’s Youth Bike Summit, a three day gathering geared toward youth, bicycles, education, and advocacy. This national conference aims to bring people from different disciplines to explore, network, and learn how bicycling can be a legitimate and safe form of transportation for today’s youth. Cycles for Change’s Youth Apprenticeship program includes six amazing youth ages 15-18 who are gaining extensive skills in bicycle mechanics, learning how a small non-profit business operates, and helping with many other parts of Cycles for Change’s operations such as teaching classes and doing outreach.

    I was all set to do this, having carved-out the time, but then I noticed the start-time just now (evidently on my tiny ‘smart’phone when I originally read it, I thought it was in the evening). Steeling myself for slips and a couple falls– I guess I’ll just Ride around tonight…
