iDEA Satellite classroom


Second Cycle has run a satellite location in South Tacoma that will build upon our work with youth for the past 2 years. In conjunction with IDEA, an industrial design high school, we will run youth programming during school hours and an open workshop during and after school on Fridays. This location expands and builds upon our current youth programming. 


Over the course of this class students will learn bicycle handling and road safety skills helping them to gain the skills and confidence to navigate common traffic and road use situations through group rides and activities. This class also has a focus on basic bicycle mechanics. Students will be given daily repair assignments, and all of the knowledge/resources to successfully complete them. Students will also be given the opportunity to completely rebuild and take home a bicycle at the end of the semester as part of their final exam.




Our goals and activities for the location include the following:


  • To engage students of IDEA

  • To provide additional classroom space for Second Cycle

  • To provide a community workspace for the neighborhood

  • To extend our resources available to a new community
