The Persephone Myth.

More girls should ride bicycles. Whomever began the notion that cycling is a boy’s sport is sorely misinformed. As Jackson Stewart - coordinator of USA Cycling’s Women’s Development Program - states: “the truth is, men just don’t pay attention to women’s racing...but once you’re part of it you see hard they (women) ride, and your perspective changes in a hurry.”

KVIBE strongly encourages girls to build and ride bicycles. With a warehouse of various parts and children's frames, any girl that wants to ride a bicycle shall. As evidenced by the Rain family: Valerie (age 11), Vaivesst (age 10), Bernartita (age 9), and Jaleina (age 10) all girls whom want to learn about bicycles will indeed.

The last week KVIBE has been actively working behind the scenes. KVIBE soft-launched a fleet of pink Kokua Kalihi Valley (KKV) staff bicycles on October 12, 2011. Built in-house, the fleet will hopefully encourage KKV staff to use bicycles in Kalihi rather then automobiles. Additionally, KVIBE welcomed new adult volunteer Sergio Garzon. Sergio officially began as a volunteer on October 15, 2011.

This week KVIBE will be open during normal operational hours. If it finds anyone well, please drop by with donations to support youth bicycling in Kalihi and beyond. Ride a Bicycle.
