MOSH Bike Project- we need locks!

 

MOSH Bike Project

Direct population-level impact can be illustrated by the MOSH bike project. The project is an elegant, occupation-based solution to an environmental lack of opportunities for transportation, physical activity, autonomy, and personal growth among inadequately- housed community members. Considering population characteristics and employing principles of learning through doing, project participants are sought out, reminded, and welcomed by a familiar face to attend a project session. There, they fix-to-own a salvaged bicycle, receive a helmet and lock, and have the opportunity to develop skills in a dynamic community setting. Attention to pragmatic and subtle sociocultural elements of engagement have made this a well-received opportunity to impact multiple determinants of health, from meeting transportation needs to opening opportunities to work or study.

Here at MOSH, we have matched over 60 people with bike/helmet/locks. Currently we are unable to continue matching bikes with people to learn skills because we do not have a space. We are only able to provide people with already-repaired bikes.

Want to help? Currently we are mostly looking for locks (which you can drop at bike pedelar dartmouth). Please contact us with any questions!
