The Youth Bike Summit is an exciting opportunity for anyone who’s into bicycles to meet others who have the same interests in bikes from all around the country. This will be my 3rd YBS I’ll be attending, which I’m looking forward to since I missed the 2017 summit *_* As I grow older it’s interesting to see the point of view of other younger youth who use bicycles not just to get from here to there but as a way to express themselves and just go out and explore! I hope to learn about other cyclists and their towns as well as trails. Hopefully see more WTF’s too :D

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!
