Partners in Housing Development Corporation provides housing for those in need while also providing social, recreational and educational programs for the residents.  One of their programs that piqued our interest is an "Earn-A-Bike" program.  A resident is able to perform work at a property earning credits and with those credits they purchase a number of useful items including a bicycle. INDYCOG will be partnering this spring with PIHDC to hold safety & eduction seminars.  We will distribute bike lights, along with safety and education materials to all residents who attend the seminars. The bike lights were provided by Bicycle Indiana / Criminal Justice Dept. Safety and Education are key values for INDYCOG and we believe that any citizen on a bike should be educated so that they can safely and effectively operate their bicycle on city streets.
