Alma’s Review

Alma, 16, participated in the Girls & Trans Build-a-Bike program at Charlie’s in 2015. She built up an awesome purple cruiser that she rides everywhere in the summer time to photograph the city and get outside.

What are four words to describe a Winter 2017 Charlie's Freewheels Trip?

"Breaking your comfort zone. For the two February weekends that I spent with the Charlie’s staff, both the Don Valley Fat Bike Trip and the Joyride Indoor Bike Park had one thing in common: trying something completely new. Don't get me wrong, I love riding my bike around the city (when it's not snowing), and I did that during their Summer rides. I had the time of my life then! But bikes with 4 inch wheels? Riding in the snow? Biking without sitting on your bike? Ramps?! I am proud to say that I answered all of the questions that I had, and these winter experiences were the answer. And now, I have learned how to use 2 new types of bikes!"
