I am riding a new trail for me, the Western Maryland Rail Trail, for Phoenix Bikes' annual fundraising ride and I am hoping to complete a metric century.  I am also hoping for an early start, the fitness to finish in 5 or so hours, good baked goods (I'm counting on you, Blue Goose Fruit Market and Bakery in Hancock!) and not so sizzling temperatures (low 80s and low humidity would be nice)...

Throughout the pandemic, Phoenix continued to serve the Arlington and greater DC community.  We provided bike repair services and used bikes for sale so folks could get to work and stay active.  And we taught youth bike repair skills initially through virtual classes, Facebook and TikTok videos and later through outdoor Earn A Bike (EAB) classes, ultimately serving 196 youth in 2020.  Happily in 2021, we are once again offering youth rides, advanced mechanics coursework and support for the youth race team.  And with schools fully re-opening in the fall, I am looking forward to returning to the classroom to teach EAB classes!

Phoenix partially covers its own operations costs with used bike sales (505 in 2020) and bike repairs, but we need additional financial resources in order to cover the costs of our youth programming.  We would appreciate your support of this small organization which makes such a big impact in the community.
