I'm really estatic to go to this 2019 youth bike summit in New York !!! I have been waiting for this since the last day of the youth bike summit in crystal city. I had tons of fun meeting new people, and sharing funny and crazy moments while riding on a bike. I really loved the fact that I was around such a positve vibe and I know there's nothing else like it. I'm really looking forward to share new stories of success, failures, and never forget experiences while on the bike. Hopefully (fingers crossed) I'll be able to share a presentation on the jewlery business that I created. BTW this will be my first time in New York !!!

NYC, here we come! We’re excited to give 8 youth bike mechanics the chance to attend this year’s Youth Bike Summit, held in Queens, New York. This annual event gathers hundreds of youth cyclists from around the country to share ideas and explore biking as a catalyst for positive social change. This has been a life-changing trip for many Phoenix Bikes youth in the past, and we’re excited for this chance to expose our youth to new opportunities and further develop them as leaders in our local community.
We are asking each youth to raise $250 toward the trip. A donation of $10 pays for meals during travel; $20 helps toward gas, tolls and parking for the van trip there and back; $35 pays for 1 youth's registration for the summit; $45 pays for 1 night's lodging for 1 youth; and $60 pays for the registration for a Phoenix Bikes staff trip leader. Thank you in advance for your support!
