1,050 bikes donated !!!
(as of September 6, 2018)
Since 2011, our club has led a bike drive within Rotary District 7680 for the benefit of Trips For Kids' Recyclery shop in Charlotte. Donated kid-sized bikes are used in Trips For Kids' "Earn-a-Bike" program. Donated adult-sized bikes are re-furbished and sold at the Recyclery shop, with proceeds benefiting all of Trips For Kids' operations.
During "Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day", usually held in early June and again in early October, our club hosts a cookout for all participants of the Trips For Kids ride at Frances Beatty Park in Matthews, NC. Always a fun event. We are proud to support Trips For Kids Charlotte!
About Trips for Kids: Trips for Kids Charlotte provides transformative cycling experiences for underserved youth. We do this through our mountain biking Ride Program, our after-school Earn-A-Bike Program and the Charlotte Re-Cyclery (used bike shop whose income helps us continue to growand serve more kids). We strive to prepare children for success by teaching respect, honesty, teamwork, overcoming challenges, healthy and safe lifestyles and service.
Just send us a message if you have a used bike (all styles, sizes and conditions accepted) to donate to our drive. We'll arrange to pick it up (Charlotte, NC area only). And thank you!
