Do you remember the day you learned to ride a bike? Remember how free, independent and excited you felt?
We do. In fact, that moment was so special to us that we work hard every day to show Every Kid in Every Community the joy of riding a bike and the freedom to explore the natural world on two wheels, especially lower-income youth who wouldn’t otherwise have access to a bike or safe, natural places to ride.
Trips for Kids is a national movement that teaches valuable life skills with the bike at the core of our programming. From STEM and vocational skills to personal responsibility and healthy habits, we believe the bike is uniquely capable of teaching lifelong lessons in a positive, hands-on, engaging way.
Founded over 30 years ago, Trips for Kids has introduced the joy of cycling to over 230,000 kids. We have a national network of community chapters and are now the largest bicycle-based positive youth development program in North America. We serve 25,000 youth annually, ages 10-17, in communities of all sizes throughout the country, from the tiniest towns to America’s largest cities.
