3rd Annual Scraper Bike Day- Halloween Bike Ride
Our event goals are to introduce a positive movement to our community that is looking for safe alternative activities for the youth to engage. We want to bring Bikes from all over the bay to come together and ride for Peace and Empowerment. As part of our entertainment we will bring together the best Hip Hop Artistes from the Bay Area to celebrate Peace, Unity, and our love for Scraper Bikes.
The Scraper Bikes was recently honored by The Oakland Unified School District for giving Extraordinary Services to the OUSD Community. We have a record of planning and holding successful non violent events over the past few years to bring awareness of this grassroots movement. Oakland is the birth place of the Scraper Bikes. Scraper bike day is part of our fundraiser to help with the goal of getting a Bike Shop in East Oakland that will be set up by youth in the community we plan on creating a bicycle shop that focuses on customizing bicycles, bicycle repair skills, and youth mentoring services. We plan on creating a sustainable, positive, educational, and "Green" way of life in the inner city.
