Why they are a good cause:
PHOENIX BIKES IS A NON-PROFIT YOUTH PROGRAM whose mission is to develop youth leaders and social entrepreneurs through hands-on learning experiences and service to the greater DC cycling community.
OUR VISION is to provide a fun, safe, and challenging environment for local youth through building & running great community bike shops. We believe this is a unique way for young leaders to learn teamwork, explore social entrepreneurship, develop business and leadership skills, and serve others.

Our region has many cyclists who deserve to be seen!
At BIKE SHOW 2009, 10 of DC Metro's most extraordinary cyclists will be profiled in a portrait of the region's diverse culture on the move. The portraits, bicycles, and people behind it all will come together with fanfare and food, bike-blended smoothies, as well as a silent auction, a chance to win a commuter bike customized by Phoenix Bikes, and lots more fun.
When: April 30th, 7-9pm
Where: the Dome Theater (Old Newseum Bld.) in Rosslyn
The BIKE SHOW is Phoenix Bikes' yearly Birthday Bash & Spring Fundraising event. Our first year's celebration was a great success. For 2009, the BIKE SHOW is back and better than ever with a focus on showcasing DC Metro's Extraordinary Cyclists!
