Project Bike Tech (PBT) is the only program of its kind in the country. We use bicycle education as a conduit to teach core academics, enhance lives, create career opportunities and inspire new generations to be passionate about bikes. PBT is the on-ramp for young adults to develop a life-long engagement with the bicycle industry and lifestyle.
PBT’s primary program, Bike Tech in School, is an accredited high school elective that introduces students to bicycle industry careers, providing them with the skills needed to become entry-level bicycle mechanics and in-depth career counseling. In addition, the program uses bicycle mechanics as a tool to teach common CORE and STEM curriculum.
Students earn two certificates, one in career tech endorsed by CTE, and the other as an entry-level bike mechanic/assembler endorsed by members of the bicycle industry. As the student enters the bike industry, employers know the training is standardized and supported by the cycling industry.
