The Community Cycling Center (CCC) is always bustling with bikey goodness. But this time of year, the place is infused with a special energy.
With school out for summer and the sun finally following suit, tons of kids are flocking to their Alberta Street headquarters to join in the fun of their summer camp programs.
The CCC’s Summer Bike Camps started this week and by the end of the season, hundreds of Portland kids will have gained valuable skills. The camps teach kids how to work on their bikes, become more self-reliant, and most importantly they learn valuable lessons about riding safely on our streets.
Depending on your child’s abilities, they’ve got a wide variety of camps to choose from. And they also have a camp just for girls.

There’s something about kids and bikes that gives me hope for the human race. Not only that, but these youngsters are the future of bike fun and advocacy in Portland.
If you or someone you know has a kid looking for a great summer activity, check out what the CCC has to offer.
