Yá’át’ééh! Guw’aadzi! Hello!

Get Native Kids on Bikes started as a passion project to dive deep into research and wield data to benefit the Indigenous youth in Albuquerque, NM, and surrounding area through cycling.

Vanessa Bowen, GNKOB founder, is a Navajo cycle enthusiast from Gallup, NM. She fell in love with cycling at a young age when her parents purchased a bicycle for her 5th birthday.

GNKOB is utilizing the knowledge obtained through the Tribal Data Champion Fellowship spearheaded by the Regents of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to ensure long term success and legacy.
