Youth Empowering Youth: Bicycle Education, Outreach & Advocacy
We encourage youth to be civic-minded through giving back to the community. Each Team El Grupo rider is expected to contribute towards community outreach. Through our community engagement, we are getting more youth on bikes and they, in turn, are teaching and inspiring the other youth (and adults) to ride, enjoy, and love bikes as much as we do!
El Grupo teaches safe cycling to different community groups and schools. Each year, we teach over 500 kids bike safety and skills and lead community bike parades called Kidical Mass in partnership with Living Streets Alliance for over 400 people.
We are developing the next generation of cyclist enthusiasts in Tucson.
