We believe that every child has the inherent freedom to ride a bike. We believe that the bicycle is not a toy but a tool, and also a vehicle. Operating a vehicle in any capacity requires knowledge, skill and responsibility. Through our program, children learn and practice the foundations of bicycle safety, maintenance, handling and road use. Our purpose is to provide an immersive and supportive experience that equips children with greater awareness and skills to be confident and responsible city riders.
From our inception we have been a sliding-scale tuition based program. We want any child and family to participate. Children from every neighborhood deserve to experience what their city has to offer, and getting there requires knowledge, situational awareness and practice. To have dependable skills and experiences in active mobility is to have connection to even greater opportunities and healthy lifestyles.
This is why from our humble beginnings, we strive to devote around ⅓ of our operating budget to sliding scale, (reaching that goal this year with mission to grow) and cooperate with each and every parent or guardian to meet their financial needs.
In a nutshell …
We are an organization here to equally serve and empower children of Charlotte one bicycle adventure at a time.
