Here is a group post from our And I Ride campaign! We are seeking to put a face on cycling in support of a legislative campaign that we are working on this year. You can read the rest of these great stories here.
We are still accepting entries, so be sure to read below to find out how to send in your story.
This story comes from the Bikes Not Bombs youth instructors: Ben, Victor, Jose Antonio, Zacorah, Ashley, WIll, Kyomi, Lucas, Mauricio, Steven, Stephane, Angel, Modesto.
Where We Ride: Boston, Jamaica Plain and every where else
How Often We Ride: Collectively; every day
We, the Bikes Not Bombs youth instructors, are dedicated to teaching youth from the community of Boston about bicycle mechanics and safety. As a group, we do tons of bicycle riding, community organizing, youth education, environmental advocacy, and much more. All of us ride our bikes nearly every day and we promote safe riding by wearing our helmets and following traffic laws. We hope that our presence in the community will help to make Boston a better place for cyclists.
All of us are in charge of running the BNB programs such as Earn-A-bike and Girls In Action. During these programs we teach lessons, lead rides, and assist youth with their mechanics. We all love getting to meet the youth who take our programs and teaching them about bikes and the environment.
Some of the bikes we ride include a Peugeot, Fuji, Cannondale, Diamondback, Raleigh, Trek, K2B, Giant, Bareknuckle, Centurion, and many others.

Thanks and keep up the good work at BNB!
