9 Tips for Teaching Anxious Kids to Bike

Check out this article from our partner, Liv Cycling USA.

"Don’t fixate on the obstacles. Focus on where you want to go instead. This may be the most important life lesson of all. When we say ‘Look Up’ what we’re really telling our kids is we have a choice: to focus on the things we fear, or to keep our eyes on the prize and power our own path forward. We are in control."

This is a good life lesson, pass it on.

The first Wednesday in October is international WALK and BIKE to School Day!

This day gets kids’ feet in motion and hearts singing and gets them to school more focused, heart healthier and they will know that they left no imprint on the environment except from the souls of their shoes and wheels of their bike, wheelchair or skateboard.

Check out this article by Next City: “Getting more students walking and biking to school isn’t just about nostalgia for the days when students walked 15 miles uphill to school — both ways. It could have widespread benefits for students and for communities."

Be a part of the movement.

For 31 years we have been providing transformative experiences and personal empowerment for young people of all communities, especially those most in need.

When we go mountain biking, they encourage us not to give up, that we can do it, that anything’s possible, so they don’t give up on us. That’s all that matters, we need people not to give up on us.
