Dustin LaFont founded Front Yard Bikes in Baton Rouge in 2010. Front Yard Bikes is a program that teaches young children to earn a bike through hard work and dedication. If kids repair or restore a bike in the Front Yard Bikes shop, they are working to earn it. LaFont uses his experience as a teacher to educate children on mathematics, physics and mechanics while repairing bikes. As a bonus, the kids experience inclusivity, mentorship, recreation and academic achievement. Front Yard Bikes provides ways for youth in the community to participate in weekly group rides, extracurricular activities and in building reliable transportation in a safe environment.
