Transforming lives and landscapes through pedal powered empowerment.

Earn-A-Bike: Youth complete a course on safety, bicycle operation and hands-on maintenance.  At the end of the program you take home a bike, lock, set of light, a helmet and the knowledge to ride with confidence.


Ride Program: This program engages youth with nature and mountain biking.  This program teaches respect, riding as a group and overcoming obstacles by pedaling forward.


The Charlotte Re-Cyclery: More that just a bike shop, it is a resource for learning bicycle mechanics, cost-efficient repair, accessories and refurbished bikes.  Our goal is to support community, mobility and access to knowledge.

Since 2000, Trips For Kids Charlotte has provided transformative cycling experiences for underserved youth.  We operate through three main programs our Earn-A-Bike Program, Ride Program and our Community Bike Shop called the Charlotte Re-Cyclery.
