Spoke ‘n Revolutions Youth Cycling (SnR) is a youth leadership program designed to inspire high potential youth from risk filled environments to pursue personal success, to prepare them for leadership roles in their community, work, and college while motivating them to be role models for others.
We do this by engaging students from under-resourced homes in four years of intensive leadership experiences including year round development programs, year round cycling activities, community service projects locally, regionally, and nationally, and preparation for continuing education and career development.
Inspiration for Spoke ‘n Revolutions Youth Cycling (SnR) came when founder Suepinda Keith recognized that outside from the very young there were very few youth on bicycles. With automobiles being the primary mode of transportation in America, SnR works to increase the use of bicycles as transportation and improve the health of our youth by connecting them with the extraordinary living systems of their local area and the country while building a community of diverse, visionary young leaders.
Our mission is to create a challenge for Youth Cyclists to think outside of traditional methods of excelling while finding ways to contribute to their community in positive ways. This gives Youth Cyclists in our community an opportunity to experience the natural world from the seat of a bike. A perspective most people have not seen in a very long time and leads to a huge appreciation of our open spaces.
