Events & Bike Rides

SEPTEMBER 30th thru NOVEMBER 10th

Girls in Gear at the Greater Brunswick Charter School in New Brunswick is offering a free, six-week program for any rider who identifies as a girl grade 3-5 and wants to build confidence on and off their bikes. Weekly meetings focus on a mix of emotional development, conversations, and riding skills. The group will meet on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:45pm for six weeks between September 30 – November 10. Loaner bikes will be made available to program participants by the YMCA to ensure that everyone who wishes has access to this program. The New Brunswick Bike Exchange is pleased to offer a large selection of children’s bikes at only $5 each for those who would like to participate in this program using a bike of their very own. Promotion runs now through the end of the program in November, while supplies last.

For more information or to get involved, email gabrielle@girlsingear.org.

The program is seeking an adult female volunteer to help lead exercises and group rides around the neighborhood.

AUGUST 15th

The New Brunswick Bike Exchange will be pleased to support The Dream Project, a cycling and service organization for young adults, when they host a community bike ride and celebration on Sunday, August 15th and we want you to be part of it.

They’ll be leading a ~20 mile ride throughout New Brunswick to celebrate the end of their summer of service.
The bike ride will kickoff at 10am from Buccleuch Park, followed by festivities at 12pm (live music! food! ice cream!).
 

We’ll also be collecting non-perishable food donations in support of the New Brunswick community.

While the event is free, we are encouraging a donation of $25 that’ll go to our charity partners.

It’s BYOB (bring your own bike) but email bikes@thedream.bike, if you need equipment.

About The Dream Project:
Every year, teams of college students commit to fundraising and volunteering with a local charity doing work in their community before biking across the country to raise awareness for the cause. This year we’re keeping it local – Rutgers University students are biking up and down the state in support of getting our communities back on their feet. They’re tackling all twenty-one counties with daily volunteer stops with community kitchens, farms, housing organizations, shelters, and more to support social service organizations across New Jersey. Fundraising efforts are going to Triple C Housing and Elijah’s Promise.

JULY 18th
The Dream Project, a cycling and service organization for young adults, will be hosting a free, family-friendly community bike ride on Sunday, July 18th in the New Brunswick area:

Grab a bike and a helmet, we’re going riding! Join the Dream Team for a ~15 mile ride throughout New Brunswick to learn about changemakers working in the city! 

Better yet, you’ll get involved in the action. After learning about two of our charity partners – Triple C Housing and Elijah’s Promise – you’ll “get a snack and give a snack” while helping assemble snack bags to give to Elijah’s Promise. 

While the event is free, we are encouraging a donation of $25 that’ll go to our charity partners.

It’s BYOB (bring your own bike) but email bikes@thedream.bike, if you need equipment.
