A year ago, The Bicycle Coalition launched a pilot program where six participants from different organizations were trained to talk about different cultures in the world of cycling and to expand the safe and healthy practice for cycling in communities in South Philadelphia.

The program was effective. More than 122 people were involved in various series of classes and tours. This is how our Equipando Familias en Bicicleta Program started in the Southwark school.

Equipando Familias is a program funded by PECO that helps assist low income families, in a “rent-to-buy” mode bicycle tools, to travel with their children in a safe and fun way. Through the program we give classes of education about the world of urban cycling, empowering communities to travel by bicycle with their children in their neighborhoods.

This month of June we are going to have two family friendly bike rides, where the families of the Equipando program will be able to use their equipment and they will be able to strengthen their skills traveling around the city.

Monday June 18 – Southwark School 1835 S 9th ST from 10AM – 12PM

Hace un año, La colisión de bicicletas lanzó un programa piloto donde fueron entrenados 6 participantes de diferentes organizaciones, para hablar sobre diversas culturas en el mundo de ciclismo y poder expandir la práctica segura y sana para montar bicicleta en comunidades del sur de filadelfia.

El programa fue muy efectivo y más de 122 personas fueron involucradas en diversas series de clases y recorridos. Es así como nuestro Programa Equipando Familias en Bicicleta dio Inicio en la escuela de Southwark.

Equipando Familias en Bicicleta, es un programa fundado por PECO que ayuda asistiendo a familias de bajo recursos, en un modo de “rentar-a-comprar” herramientas de bicicleta para viajar con sus hijos en una forma segura y divertida. A través del programa damos clases de educación sobre el mundo del ciclismo urbano, empoderando comunidades a viajar en bicicleta con sus hijos en sus vecindades.

Este mes de Junio vamos a realizar dos paseos familiares, donde las familias del programa Equipando podrán utilizar sus equipos y podrán fortalecer sus habilidades viajando por la ciudad.
