We are proud to spread the word about the Bay Area BMXer’s “Flood The Street With Bikes” program! Huge shout out to Howard Cato for his mission to give back to the community!!
“My name is Howard Cato, and I’m the founder of Bay Area BMXers (a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit). I run a bicycle race team and mentor underprivileged kids here in the Bay Area. Growing up, some of my best memories include BMX and riding a bicycle and I want to help bring those types of experiences to the kids in our community!
When we are not racing BMX, we work locally with kids, teaching them how to ride bikes and all about bike safety skills. We take bikes and helmets to schools and bike parks for kids to ride and put smiles on their faces.
We call our new mission Flood the Streets with Bikes! We go into neighborhoods where many people won’t go, in order to reach kids that have not been exposed to bicycles, but that deserve the same opportunities as anyone else! Since we started this campaign in January 2018, we’ve already been able to expand our program and now need to raise money for additional bikes, helmets, and safety gear. Our goal is to add an additional 120 bikes to our fleet so that we can truly expand our program.
More than anything, I want to see these kids ride. If I have to sacrifice my own bike to put a smile on one of their faces, then that is what I will do.”
