Using the bicycle as a vehicle and the core of our programming, Trips for Kids serves youth aged 7-17 and uses the bicycle as a tool to offer hands-on learning and creative problem-solving and teamwork, while nurturing a lifelong connection to healthy movement and the outdoors. We provide transformative cycling experiences, through a network of chapters, that promote healthy, recreational lifestyles, environmental awareness, and personal empowerment for youth of all communities, especially those most in need. Trips for Kids is North America’s leading organization bringing diversity to bicycling. Our participation rates reflect a higher than average diversity of participants. Since 1988 we have taken more than 230,000 kids on scenic, fun and safe riding adventures through gorgeous parks, forests and other natural areas, and taught valuable STEM-based lessons.
