We couldn’t do what we do at Two Wheel View without our fantastic volunteers! We have been exceptionally fortunate to have a number of dedicated volunteers that help us with everything from fixing bikes to writing to leading trips.
Volunteers work tirelessly behind the scenes, and we have several volunteers that have been with us for many years, and have given us so many hours of their time.
Volunteers, if we haven’t told you lately, we are immeasurably grateful to you! Stay tuned this week for some stories from our awesome and dedicated volunteers!
Week of November 9th-15th
“Roll with it”! When it feels like the world has come to a full stop, we have learned to keep rolling. We’ve discovered new hobbies, reconnected with old friends, and been given the time to reflect what we value the most.
Finding new ways to roll has been an important part of our 2020 journey. The bike is a source of autonomy and freedom, and we see the importance of continuing to deliver these feelings to our youth!
Your donation will help fuel our Keep Rolling Fund, which targets our greatest needs. With your support, Two Wheel View will be able to keep taking our passion to the community through our COVID-aligned online in-school programs, workshops, and year-long bike clubs.

There’s a big part of our work at Two Wheel View that focuses on the mechanical; wrenches turning, chains breaking, the quieting squeaky brakes. In delivering programs and working with youth to earn bikes, there are certainly a lot of mechanics, logistics and planning. We’ve definitely got it down to a science.
But there’s an art to it too. We are the Proud Purveyor of First Bikes. For many of our youth in our Earn-a-Bike program, this is the first time they’ll have a bike of their own. Their first freedom machine. The stories that they write while on these bikes will be painted in their memories for the rest of their lives.
These are stories and paintings that they’ll recall as magical parts of their childhood. These are adventure stories and watercolour sunsets. These are their ‘come back when the street lights come on’ moments. Experiences with sights, sounds and senses in full techni-colour and surround sound. Our Two Wheel View supporters provide the vehicle to access it all.
To these young people, it’s a masterpiece.
A BIG thank you to artist Marie Bryce for creating this beautiful spoken word piece for us to celebrate week 2 of 12 Gears of Giving!
