People ask me what’s HJF besides the name?

Happy, Joyous and Freewheeling is about the community helping its youth through unity and outreach. HJF is about opportunity, a chance for our youth to experience the joy that comes from owning a bike and riding, and the opportunity to train for internships and jobs! And HJF is about the freedom you feel moving under your own power!
-—David Nam, Founder and Executive Director
