A bike-sharing program that helps with addictions

Spoke Songs, the Downtown Eastside’s organization that promotes recovering from substance-abuse through cycling, is accepting donations of used or new bicycles.

Its director, Jonathan Orr, decided to kick-start a bike-sharing program with the idea of moving from the theory to the practice.

Orr wants to organize guided rides throughout Vancouver with people from the community who don’t have access to bicycles, and help them get better.

Here’s an audio slideshow in which he tells what drives him to foster this initiative.
