Mountain Biking for Healthy, Confident Kids!
Mission Statement: Trips for Kids Phoenix provides mountain bike outings and environmental education to disadvantaged, urban youth who would not otherwise be exposed to such activities. Our outings create a positive, fun outdoor experience for children, while teaching valuable lessons about living a healthy lifestyle, promoting environmental awareness, and fostering self-esteem.
Youth Mountain Biking Program
Trips for Kids Phoenix (TFK PHX) is dedicated to giving disadvantaged, urban youth the opportunity to experience and learn about the natural beauty of Arizona from the seat of a mountain bike. We strive to give children the chance to see a different side of Arizona, to expand their understanding of what they can achieve, and to make personal connections with the natural world. We are an organization of cyclists, educators, and community leaders who believe we can make an unquestionable difference in the lives of children by opening their minds to new possibilities, and arming them with greater self-esteem.
TFK PHX partners with numerous youth agencies in the Phoenix Metro area (Boys & Girls Clubs, Four Directions, The Phoenix Police Department, and Gang Resistance and Education Training) to provide fun-filled, mountain bike outings for small groups of children aged 10 and up. The trips are lead by our experienced Ride Leaders who, along with several adult volunteers, teach the children basic mountain biking skills and provide positive encouragement throughout the challenging day on the trial. The beautiful foothills and mountain parks we explore provide the perfect setting for the youngsters to experience first- hand and learn about the natural areas of Arizona.
