East Side resident filling a need for youth programs

“There’s just not a heck of a lot for teens to do around here,” says Jeremy Sartain, an East Side resident and creator of ESP (East St. Paul) Bikes.

Sartain is using bicycles to get East Side youths involved in their community and to learn some valuable skill sets. He teaches them how to fix donated bikes and then has them give them away in the community.

The idea of instructing kids on how to repair bikes came about in an unlikely way -- after a bike theft.

In 2015 Sartain had two of his bicycles stolen from his garage. One bike was traced by police to a nearby pawnshop. While searching for his second bike, Sartain noticed many homes in his neighborhood had a bunch of bikes, but most were inoperable because no one knew how to fix them up.
