Trips for Kids Marin
Trips for Kids™ mission is to provide transformative cycling experiences for underserved youth. Our programs aim to build self-esteem, inspire healthy lifestyles and instill environmental values through mountain bike rides, mechanical skills training and environmental education.
Our Marin chapter in San Rafael, CA, was founded in 1988 and primarily serves underserved youth throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, working with over 400 local agencies and organizations. Our most popular offering are our Trail Rides, which are supplemented by our Earn-a-Bike and Mobile Bike workshops, and the Re-Cyclery Bike Shop.
Trips for Kids Marin is also the headquarters for our national chapter network, and has been the model on which over 70 chapters nationwide have been based since 1994. Our chapters have been continuously providing lessons in self-confidence, environmental awareness and healthy habits to tens of thousands of youth through the simple act of having fun on bicycles.
