On May 22nd, our collaboration with Bike Cleveland and the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland called the Cleveland Refugee Bike Project will hold the first training, to size helmets and bikes for recently settled Cleveland refugees from the first of three language groups. Shortly thereafter twenty Arabic speaking refugees will visit OCBC for a special, translated Traffic Skills ride, and receive their bikes, helments, locks, and other essential accessories.

We would like to thank everyone who donated bikes and funding for this special project to help integrate some of the world’s neediest citizens into our community with economical, practical transportation. Your generosity is appreciated by us, our partners, and Cleveland’s refugee population.
