Trips For Kids

Marilyn Price set up the Trip For Kids project

Born from a passion for cycling and a desire to share it, Trips for Kids has opened up the world of cycling to over 140,500 at-risk youths since 1988 through mountain bike rides and Earn A Bike program. The kids that take part are given the opportunity to “work and play as a team, to exert themselves physically, and to interact with a group of caring adult volunteers who offer valuable mentoring and promote cross-cultural understanding.” With each ride, participants “gain a sense of accomplishment and expand their self-esteem and environmental awareness, while gaining a broader perspective on their life.”
