This Detroit Non-Profit Wants to Spread Bike Culture to Every Neighborhood in the City

Do you remember what it felt like to have your own bike as a kid? For many of us, it was our first taste of independence.

The Detroit non-profit group Wrench was formed in 2014 to help kids in Detroit have- and learn to repair- their own bikes. The group has given away hundreds of used bikes and now they want to expand their mission to make sure every kid in the city can have a working bicycle. Listen to founder Jean Wilson discuss how Wrench began with WDET’s Amanda LeClaire.
