Updates & Press
In October, Maya Rodriguez and a Scripps National TV crew came to the Gearin’ Up shop to shed light on our community bicycle story.
On Saturday, Oct. 3rd, a camera crew from NBC 4 came by Gearin’ Up to interview staff and customers! Perhaps most importantly, two of our youth mechanics got some air time to talk about their time at Gearin’ Up.
In August, Gearin’ Up Bicycles’ Shop and Operations Manager, Keith, was live with Reese Waters on WUSA9’s #GetUpDC!
In May, we had the opportunity to talk about how COVID has caused an increase in bicycle use and showcase one of our youths journey with Gearin’ Up!
With bike repairs, kids learning to ride for the first time, and our very own youth bringing down the house with their wheelie game, it is safe to say that the first Open Streets DC is a day we will not soon forget! All pictures are available in our Facebook album.
