Binghamton’s Fresh Cycles program ran from 2008-2010 but closed down due to lack of volunteers, but thanks to new support, it’s back again today!

The Fresh Cycles program is being re-launched through a partnership between the City of Binghamton Youth Bureau and the Play Hard. Eat Well. Binghamton! which is a a project of the Healthy Lifestyles Coalition.

Fresh Cycles is a fun and educational youth program that takes place at the Lee Barta Community Center on Binghamton’s North Side.  Through hands-on tutorials, both kids and adults can learn basic bicycle maintenance and repair skills, and earn their own bike.

The goal of Fresh Cycles is to break the cycles of crime, violence, and poverty in the community and start “fresh” new cycles of creativity, community collaboration, youth development, and empowerment.

The first training will be held this evening, Wednesday November 20th at 6pm, with four additional classes in the series offered every two weeks on Wednesdays.

Fresh Cycles is a community-run program and always in need of volunteers, donations, and ideas so if you’re a resident or local business owner interested in getting involved, please contact the Lee Barta Community Center at 772-7226 or freshcyclesbinghamton@gmail.com.
