Major Taylor Project

Attend MTP after-school clubs and ensure students are safe, supported, and having fun! Volunteers assist Ride Leaders in teaching the students the basics of safe cycling, group riding, and so much more! Equity and justice lense required.

Food Bank Support Rides

Our mission is to deliver pedal-powered food and goods to food-insecure neighbors, all from the seat of a cargo-carrying bicycle. Plus it’s just fun to ride your bike with a purpose! We serve marginalized communities across Seattle.
