Transforming lives and landscapes through pedal powered empowerment.
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.
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.
This program engages youth with nature and mountain biking. This program teaches respect, riding as a group and overcoming obstacles by pedaling forward.
Wrench & Ride
Our Wrench and Ride program provides a safe and supportive space for womxn to discover and grow skills and relationships through bicycles.
