An interview with Tommy Bensko, Bay Area BikeMobile Founder and Program Director.
Tell us about the Bay Area Bike Mobile.
Once a bike gets a flat tire, it may go unridden for months or years. That’s where we come in. Our free, mobile, hands-on repair clinics get people back on their bikes and helps them to become more confident and empowered riders. This is a Spare the Air Youth program that focuses on serving low income communities where barriers to biking are prevalent.
