Why Charlie's Freewheels? Charlie's Freewheels is a small charity in Regent Park, Toronto. We use bicycles to support the development of youth. Participants learn how to build their own bikes, how to ride them safely and confidently, and then they get to take home the bike they built themselves (plus a helmet & lock). We pluck these bikes from the waste stream.
This cause is important to me because I work on building cycling infrastructure for the City of Toronto, but I want to make sure nobody is excluded from cycling. I also know how difficult it can be for young people to feel independent, learn skills outside the classroom, and generally have a safe place to go -- especially between school and home. For me, Charlie's Freewheels is at the crux of what is socially and environmentally responsible. It is a small group of people coming together to provide positive and safe opportunities for young people, and give them wheels! That sense of fun and freedom you get from riding a bike should be for everyone!
