This month’s Baltimore Magazine features a great piece on the Baltimore Youth Kinetic Energy Collective or BYKE, which was started by 2015 OSI Community Fellow, Chavi Rhodes. Rhodes and co-founder Alphonso Blackstone wanted to create a safe space for young cyclists that also gave them an opportunity to learn bicycle mechanics, practice respectful safe ridership and build community. BYKE also gives kids a chance to earn a bike of their own.
Rhodes and her program were also recently featured in a Baltimore Sun profile, as well as on WJZ.
Read more about BYKE in our Impact Series recently and you can watch Rhodes talk about the collective in this OSI Community Fellowships video.
