Bike mentoring keeps spinning through COVID-19, and so do we.

Community Bike Works teaches life lessons through bicycles to the young people of Allentown and the Lehigh Valley who could benefit most for 25 years. Through our Earn a Bike and Junior Earn a Bike programs, we connect students with mentors and lessons in bike mechanics and safety. At the end of the program, students earn their bike and a helmet, and are invited to take part in our afterschool and summer enrichment programs. You can learn more about our high-quality youth development programs and their impact here.

Community Bike Works and Lehigh Valley Health Network work together to bring the Spin-a-Thon event to downtown Allentown. Riders compete for prizes for the most miles ridden and dollars raised in support of our bike mentoring programs. Over the past four years, the Spin-a-Thon has become a fun, engaging event for Bike Works' supporters to connect with each other and our students that we look forward to every year.

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, this year's Spin-a-Thon will take place virtually over 25 days! From September 20 to October 14, you can earn your miles wherever and whenever you please to raise money for bike mentoring programs.

We're asking teams to raise a minimum of $200 per team member, or at least $1,000 per team. Our fundraising guide is coming soon! More details can be found in the "Event Information" tab.

Mileage tracking, event guidelines, and more exciting updates coming soon!

Thank you to our Spin-a-Thon Sponsors!
