Chapel Hill UMC

Chapel Hill Cyclers

A youth cycling club was a vision by Pastor Dave Buckner, with a target of Summer 2021 launch. Yet, Pastor Dave recognized that 2020 brought about desperate need for such a program. The vision came to fruition in June 2020 so that youth in the community would have safe opportunities to engage in positive physical and socio-emotional activities during a time when few opportunities existed. Chapel Hill Cyclers provided weekly opportunities for youth to gather safely with physical distancing for a bike ride, to learn about bike safety and maintenance and to build positive relationships with each other and with adult program volunteers. This program ran into the fall, and Pastor Dave plans for it to continue into 2021 and beyond.
