This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Charlie’s FreeWheels

Charlie’s FreeWheels (CFW) runs bicycle-based programming to build con­dence and leadership skills in youth and drive positive social change. By teaching bicycle mechanics, offering weekly group rides through the city, hosting ­field trips, and hiring program alumni, CFW is supporting the development of empowered young leaders engaged with cycling issues in Toronto. This year, CFW will offer additional training opportunities to youth enrolled in their fall programs, as well as employment opportunities for past program participants, to build transferrable skills and increase their employability into the future.

Charlie’s FreeWheels is trusteed by Regent Park Community Health Centre.
