Last Sunday, a group of Santa Cruz residents gathered to flex their collective bike maintenance skills and help area youth in the process. A crew of 13 volunteers were able to get 36 bikes ready for the trails, overcoming bent derailleurs and wheels along the way. Of the 36 bikes, 20 are slated to be given away to deserving youth. The other 16 will go back into the CBC’s line up to be used this fall for recurring rides with Shoreline Middle School, the Santa Cruz City School District, and the Pajaro Valley Unified School District.
