Why Ride Bikes?

Gearing Up uses biking as a tool to increase physical activity and lower stress. We help women adopt healthier lifestyles to combat histories of abuse, addiction, and incarceration.
Our programs offer a safe space where women can seek advice and encouragement, build friendships, and make community connections that lead to personal growth and positive life changes.
Participants gain confidence as they learn practical skills and set goals. Biking can provide an important means of transportation as women look to reenter the workforce and move toward their long-term success.

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are incredibly important to the Gearing Up mission. In order to give women who ride with us a full sense of safety, community, social connectivity, and support, we need your help! Gearing Up is looking for committed ride volunteers and enthusiastic community members to join us.
