Psyched to Bike – how a local nonprofit is tackling poverty with wheels

  • Date: 12/01/2023

The Circles Campaign of the Mid-Ohio Valley is a local nonprofit dedicated to helping families get out of poverty permanently.

Psyched to Bike is a new program they’ve created to tackle that mission.

WTAP has more on how used bikes are transforming Circles participants’ lives.

Circles participants Jason and Raeanna Earl have been using the bikes they got from the Psyched to Bike program for about six months. Before the program, they walked most places and took the bus when they could afford to. Now their bikes are their main form of transportation.

“We average anywhere from 10 to 20 miles a day depending on our appointments or where we have to be,” Jason said.

The bikes they were given are two of the used bikes Circles volunteers are fixing up and giving to members.
