Following the fatal crash involving a dirt bike and a fire truck in West Baltimore, Two Way Talk focuses on the culture of dirt bikes in the city. 

 

Although illegal and raises many public safety concerns, dirt bike riding has been part of  Baltimore’s culture for decades. 

 

B-360, a STEM program in Baltimore utilizes that culture to build bridges within communities and to end the cycle of poverty. 

 

Brittany Young, founder and CEO of B-360 joins Two Way Talk to discuss the history of the off road motorcycles and what her organization is doing to change the negative perception of riders.
