Two community organizations partnered to put bikes in the hands of South Memphis teens.
Revolutions Bicycle Cooperative and The Works, a community development program in South Memphis, want $300 to give each teenager bikes, helmets, locks and lights. They hope to donate to at least 25 teenagers recruited from community groups and local high schools like Hamilton, Soulsville and Booker T. Washington.
Sylvia Crum, Executive Director at Revolutions Bicycle Co-op and Roshun Austin, C.E.O. of The Works, went to the Netherlands for a bike study tour and want to bring what they learned back to their community.
