THE RIDE BEGINS
While boundless opportunity is certainly part of Silicon Valley’s core mystique, the kids and families served by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula often live outside of the region’s predominant narrative. Many neighborhood youth remain disconnected from the educational and employment opportunities that surround them. Failing to see clear pathways to success, these youth often “drift-out” from formal education, leaving them with little hope after high school.

Belle Haven Bikes was created to give young people from Menlo Park’s Belle Haven community opportunities to feel as successful as the technology innovators in their own backyard. We envision a space where youth connect through bikes and cycling with professionals from Silicon Valley, perhaps one day developing into mentoring relationships that act to increase their social capital. We dream of teaching all children from Belle Haven to safely ride bikes and adopt active lifestyles.
