The greatest part of the school: its bike shop! Check out Policy In Motion's article for more information about how Metster, Jeremy Gray, along with a group of other students put together this Bike Collective for his Senior Thesis.
Our mission is to teach Met Sacramento community members of all skill and knowledge levels about repairing and maintaining their bikes so that they may become more self-sufficient. We are dedicated to providing helpful and lasting hands-on bicycle help to Metsters in an accessible and friendly environment. Many Metsters rely on their bicycles for transportation, and we hope to create the collective to support them.
This is how we should be raising children. By giving them the tools and experience to be functioning and progressive members of a society that encourages sustainable growth. It gives me hope to know that although many people have lost out on the joys of growing up on bicycles, there is a new, burgeoning bicycling generation who is reclaiming bikes as transportation and taking it upon themselves to help others along the way. This gives me hope (and a place for me to take my bike if it decided to break).
