AppleCycle is a fundraising bike ride that benefits the Community Bicycle Center (CBC), a youth development nonprofit based in Biddeford, Maine. The CBC is a year-round youth development program and home-base for hundreds of kids. The CBC is a community-based program that uses bicycle-related activities as the tool for helping youth and young adults, especially those who are struggling in other areas of their lives, achieve future success through asset-building activities, mentorship, and life skills development. CBC programs operate year-round and are always free for kids.
