Access To Bikes
Kids on Bikes has found that in some of our neighborhoods, only 30% of kids have access to a bicycle ready to ride.
Through our programs we offer quality refurbished bikes from the Pedal Station.
Opportunities to Ride
Over 58% of El Paso County children get less than 60 min of physical activity daily. -Colorado Health Department.
-We train and equip local leaders to get more kids out more often by bicycle.
-We aim to create a city where the future generations ride bikes as frequently as possible.
Only 13% of Colorado kids walk or bike to school, compared to nearly 50% of kids thirty years ago. In that time, childhood obesity grew 300%. -2015 Colorado Health Report Card
-Education is empowering. Through education, kids become stewards of their own bike and personal health.
-Ongoing education further empowers kids and their families to ride bikes safely, frequently, and with as much confidence as possible.
Bike Libraries are re-purposed shipping containers that become mini “bike hubs” complete with refurbished bikes, basic tools, parts, and helmets. Bike Libraries are established through long-term collaboration partnerships. Our partners use the Bike Libraries to run bike programming that suits their needs, offers the opportunities for youth to earn their own bike, and otherwise provide ongoing access to bicycles!
