The Crucible’s Bike Program is a free year-round community outreach program that addresses personal transportation needs. The Bike Program promotes an alternative, sustainable mode of transportation, while providing essential bike repair services to our community, diverting useable/salvageable waste from landfills, and reinforcing reuse of materials. Since 2005, over 7,000 youth have participated in The Crucible’s Bike Program, and thousands of bicycles have been repaired to nearly-new status.
We know what a safe bike can do for our neighbors, and studies show that extends beyond individual impact. Communities that bike are safer, healthier, and happier. We are dedicated to getting Oakland back on bikes.
