The Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition Vigorous Youth are putting their neighborhood on the map when it comes to biking. Mattapan on Wheels is a free, youth-led day of biking that draws neighbors and residents from all over Boston, especially those of colour. The annual event is committed to developing youth leadership through increasing bike access, safety, and the visibility of the biking community in Mattapan. Free bike rentals and helmets make it easy for families to discover the joy of biking together. A choice of three routes helps to accommodate people of all ages and abilities. Most importantly, youth are given an active role in all of the planning and decision making, boosting pride in their neighborhood, and shining a positive light on the community.
