At Open Roads Bike Program, we believe that Adults + Youth + Bikes + Heart make our program possible. Founded in 2009, Open Roads Bike Program is a Kalamazoo-based youth development program that teaches social skills and bike mechanic skills to youth in the greater Kalamazoo community. We have a variety of programs focused on youth development, vocational skills training, youth leadership development, and bicycle mechanic training.
Open Roads Bike Program embraces and values the diversity of Kalamazoo and the world around us. We are people of all ages, from all walks of life, working together to use bicycles as a vehicle for skill development and community engagement. We encourage people of all abilities, ages, economic statuses, faiths, ideologies, genders, gender identities, ethnic origins, nationalities, races, and sexual orientations to be a part of the Open Roads Bike Program community.
