Where the Money Goes
Mission: Our mission is to leverage all the benefits of cycling to support and improve the lives of youth and teens in the Triangle region that are under-represented in both recreational and competitive cycling.
The bicycle is truly an amazing creation. Besides your feet, it was your first step toward independence and freedom. It allowed you to go quickly go to distant places (around the block) and get back before the street lights came on. You were definitely in control. A bike meant freedom then and means freedom now.
Since 2010, Triangle Bikeworks (a 501c3 non-profit) has continuously run and expanded programming to support youth through cycling. Our mission is to leverage all the benefits of cycling with an end goal of developing young adults who have a lifelong desire for physical outdoor activities both on and off the bicycle.
This community organization is an extension of you. As our primary stakeholder here are the percentages of our yearly expenses in providing quality programs and enrichment.
While we grow and serve more youth we want you to continue being a part of our evolution to establish healthy lifestyles for teens. Click the link here and contribute the cost of a lunch or dinner for two and help us bring good kids to bikes.
Youth Programming - The bread to your butter
The expenses of Spoke'n Revolutions Youth Cycling, Summer Bike Camp, Youth Cyclocross and Youth Mechanic Classes are rolled up into this number.
Facilities and Equipment - Where we make plans to take over the world (Triangle)
Running the backend of a youth organization requires a great deal of infrastructure. Included in this category is rent, storage and vehicle maintenance costs.
Insurance - Because you gotta be prepared
What can I say? It's a necessary item. It's as important to have as bicycles to a bike organization.
Contract Services - Because we have no staff
We run on the fuel of volunteers. But sometimes the job is so tough we have to call in the specialists. This is where we contract out. Specifically, for SAG Vehicle drivers and bike mechanic work. Truly necessary for our survival.

Heroes come in many forms but the most known archetype is the reluctant hero. An ordinary person thrust into a situation that allows them to rise to the occasion. Well, this isn’t that kind of story. There were no people needing to be saved and no evil to be vanquished. But what it is though[…]
One of the most enlightening, enriching and heartfelt moments of the Gullah Geechee “Path to Freedom tour” was our visit to Geechee Kunda in Riceboro, GA. It was discovered by Coach Atiba doing his reconnaissance mission planning the tour. Founded by Jim and Pat Bacote, the Kunda is a haven of peace and love just[…]
During a Zombie Apocalypse a bike seems like the perfect getaway ride. Except for the rear cassette, it’s way more quiet than a car or motorcycle and it can’t run out of gas. But then, of course, you can. Yeah, Rick used one when he first awoke from the hospital. It made sense then, he[…]
I woke up this morning not wanting ice water but NEEDING it. This had never happened before and at 2:40am to boot. But something was different. I walked out of my hotel room with ice bucket in hand and headed to the ice machine, filled it and headed back to my room. Still unsure as to[…]
