Trips for Kids is the nation’s largest youth development bicycling organization. We have enriched the lives of over 200,000 young people across North America using a simple yet powerful tool – the bicycle. Our first small chapter was started by CNN Hero Marilyn Price in 1988; we have since organically grown to 75 chapters offering free bicycling programs for over 20,000 youth annually in the US and Canada. Young people aged 10-17, mostly underserved, come to us from neighborhoods, schools, agencies and community organizations. Our Discovery Trail Rides, Adventure Clubs, Earn-a-Bike Workshops, Youth@ Work Programs, Mobile Bike Clinics, ReCyclery Community Bike Shops and other youth development programs are helping to combat the physical inactivity crisis, promote equitable access to safe places to play and exercise, provide opportunities for physical activity in and out of school, and build self-esteem, personal skills and learn environmental stewardship, thus mentoring youth to achieve better life outcomes.
