The number of kids in the US who regularly ride a bike has dropped 20% since 2007. Childhood obesity has reached epidemic levels and depression among adolescents continues to rise. The physical and mental benefits of biking have been proven time and time again but for millions of kids in the US, access to bikes and safe places to ride is not a reality. The YCC offers a solution. Our mission is to take collective action for all kids to access, experience and develop a lifelong love of bicycling ultimately fostering the integration of cycling into the fabric of local communities.
