Our Ride Program takes children on rides throughout the biking season. Our volunteers lead bike trips for groups of up to a dozen youths drawn from the many community organizations from the Five Boroughs and Long Island. Rides will take place on off-road trails throughout the Metro New York area, and are designed as lessons in self-exploration and environmental awareness. Ride participants learn biking skills, safety and trail etiquette. We stress the importance of one's own actions both on and off the trail. These rides can be challenging, and it's not unusual to see kids learning teamwork by helping each other up a steep hill or over rough terrain.
