Bikes are donated by Tulsa citizens and refurbished by Tulsa Hub staff and volunteer mechanics. After participants “pay it forward” with a minimum of six hours of volunteerism and training, bicycles and gear are earned in the Adult Cycling Empowerment (ACE) program. The mission also works to change the habits of the next generation through active-transportation programs with elementary- and middle-school students.
