Overview
Trips for Kids has provided mountain biking outings, job training, and environmental education to underserved youth in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1989. They team up with community and government agencies to operate three programs: (a) Earn-a-Bike, which teaches kids from low-income communities practical bike repair skills, life skills, and job skills, while earning bikes of their own; (b) Mountain Bike Rides, which provides outdoor adventures for underserved kids six days a week, year round, in state and national parks; and (c) the Re-Cyclery bike thrift shop, which refurbishes and sells used bikes, parts, and accessories. During the two-year grant period, Trips for Kids plans to serve more than 5,000 youth, with an average 150 days of outdoor activities and 500 Earn-a-Bike classes a year.
