Kids on Bikes

What

Kids on Bikes mission is to inspire and empower all kids to lead healthy, active, and happy lives through bicycling. In early 2016, we launched the Pedal Station, our social enterprise that will help to grow our programs, engage more volunteers, and further expand our mission. Since opening, we have provided 670 bikes to kids, donated 168 bikes to community partners, recycled 1,660 bikes and our volunteers have served over 5,000 hours!

Why

We work hard to equip and train others to bring the joy of bicycling to their own neighborhood or school, and integrate the bicycle into children’s everyday lives. We strive to connect people to their neighborhood and parks in a new way and empower kids, families and communities to pedal toward a healthier future. We build long-term partnerships to create healthier neighborhoods with the bicycle.

Needs

Volunteer ride leaders, mechanics and event team members; any and all bicycling-related donations (bikes, clothes, training tools, etc), and gift cards to Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, etc.

Did You Know

In El Paso County, 27.6 percent of children aged 2 to 14 are overweight or obese and 53 percent of kids from low-income neighborhoods don’t own a rideable bike.

“It makes me happy to see a kid smile through something that I wasn’t able to use. It’s fun to work with other volunteers to make more kids happy.”
— Kal Salem, Pedal Station volunteer
