So far this summer we have provided mountain bike outings to over 100 local youth. Our typical ride involves meeting at a local area, usually The NC Arbortetum/Bent Creek. Once we gather, we teach the kids about proper helmet fit. Then we move on to bikes, how they work and get the kids fitted with the proper size bike. Once each youth has a bike, we talk about trail etiquette and ride safety.
Then we ride. It is great to see how much the kids enjoy the ride and learn about nature at the same time. Keep in mind, most of these kids rarely or never get to venture into the woods. One of our favorite quotes: “It smells like trees!”
Did you know that we do not charge anything for our trips? This is where we need your help. It costs $50 per trip per kid to provide these outings. Outings that would most likely not happen if there was a fee involved.
