Colby Singleton, Program Director of Holyoke Urban Bike School at the YMCA in Holyoke, joined host Raquel Obregon on Tertulia. 

Colby discussed the program's opportunities for youth including classes on basic bike repair skills and safety tips for riding in the streets. The majority of the students start in the Earn A Bike program -- a hands on program where students learn basic skills and then take a bike home at the end of the program after fulfilling 20 hours of shop time.
