Richmond Cycling Corps uses cycling to create positive change in the lives of youth who live in Richmond, Virginia’s public housing projects. It is not like a typical after-school or drop-in program, where kids might attend once and never return. Services include casual and long-distance cycling outings; mountain bike racing in middle school and high school; a bike rental service completely run by the youth; case management that includes tutoring, help with medical needs and other day-to-day life challenges; and a small school, the Legacy Academy, for students who don’t thrive in a typical classroom.


In this episode, Richmond Cycling Corps Director Matt Kuhn talks about how the program uses bikes as a way to connect and build relationships with kids and teens.
