Bicycles have always been a cheap and fun way of transportation that people could enjoy all over the world. Learning how to ride a bike is a memorable milestone experience for most people growing up. The moment a person pedals forward with no training wheels or help from a parent is one of the most rewarding and empowering experiences for a child. However, in certain demographics, some children never get to experience the joy of riding or even the process of learning how to ride. This is why Community Bike Collective is such an important organization for the community of Watsonville, California, and neighboring communities all around. Being able to provide the less fortunate with fun biking experiences is important for some of these children who otherwise can’t go on bike rides or afford one in general due to situations at home. Interning at Community Bike Collective has been an amazing experience so far being able to see the smiles on kids’ faces and working with like-minded individuals who want to help provide that experience for them.
