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.

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.


Wrench & Ride

Our Wrench and Ride program provides a safe and supportive space for womxn to discover and grow skills and relationships through bicycles.
