TRAIL RIDES PROGRAM

THE JOY OF RIDING AND EXPLORING NATURE

We offer three ways of engagement with this fun sport:

Mobile Bike Clinics

On specified dates, we will bring the bicycles and equipment to a conveniently located site close to where kids live, play and learn.

Depending on the local geography or terrain, kids bike in gorgeous parks, forests or paved pathways in nature, perhaps some of them leaving their urban environments for the first time! Our trained ride leaders teach kids basic bike skills, the love of exercise, environmental awareness and most importantly – self-confidence to meet life’s challenges!

Agency Rides

These events are very similar in nature to Mobil Bike Clinics/Workshops.

The main difference is that Agency Rides are organized in collaboration with a youth-related organization for a particular group of kids at a predetermined / agreed upon location and are typically longer; they may even be a whole day event or a weekend event.

If you would like to discuss a ride event for your youth group, Let us know.

If kids want to ride more often and belong to a community of youth mountain bikers, they can join our T4K Mountain Bike Club.

What does it all mean for kids!

BUILD

BUILDING SELF-CONFIDENCE

Group trail riding helps to build confidence that carries over to the classroom with improved academic performance, better grades and healthier, happier social interactions.

BOND

BONDING WITH PEERS

Participating in positive and healthy trail riding adventures brings kids together, benefitting everyone, especially those from underserved communities.

CONNECT

CONNECTING WITH NATURE

Riding bikes in natural areas can foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature and instill environmental values that can last a lifetime.

FUN

FUN AND HEALTHY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Riding bikes develops an increased understanding of the benefits of exercise and good nutrition. Kids may notice improved fitness levels, especially those who’ve participated in multiple rides.

SAFETY

BIKE SAFETY LESSONS

Mobile Bike Clinics offer lessons in basic bike and traffic safety at safe neighborhood locations such as parks, school campuses and empty parking lots.

FOCUS

IMPROVING DEXTERITY AND FOCUS

Kids get to practice their riding skills and develop improved balance, mental focus and coordination by completing short riding courses that challenge their balance, steering and knowledge.

CARE

LEARNING HOW TO CARE FOR A BIKE

Lessons in bike maintenance teach responsibility and pride in ownership, and help to foster independence and self- reliance. Students learn how to work with their hands, use and care for tools, and achieve goals.

This is what it’s all about – the Trail Ride!”
