I have incorporated other activities into earning a bike, and I still make sure they can maintain a bike with Fix a flat and lubing a chain classes. If they can not take care of the bike they earn then it will not be used and I have not created a cyclist.

Does anyone have experience with an earn-a-bike program where the bike recipients earn a bike not by learning bike mainteence skills, but by completing some other task or assignment?  For example, by participating in an after school program, or volunteering for a community project, or agreeing to take part in an educational program on drug awareness/nutrition and fitness/sex education.  i.e. Have you found creative ways to use a bike as a bridge to address other important issues, for young people or adults?  Thanks!  Chuck
