Trips for Kids Rising Up
TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH ADVENTURE
Trips for Kids Rising Up
Since 1988 Trips for Kids has taken over 185,000 kids on scenic, fun and safe riding adventures through gorgeous parks, forests and other natural areas. For some, this is their first venture beyond an urban neighborhood!
Trips for Kids Rising Up is boosting confidence, strengthening social bonds, and increasing supportive connections in the community with our 4-week bike rides.
Miami is home to many pedestrian and cycling trails through our beautiful parks.
We take youth on weekly rides in the Everglades, Blackcreek Trail, Virginia Key, Bill Baggs Park, Biscayne Trail and more!
It's important for youth to feel connected to their communities; to feel a sense of belonging; to understand the natural ecosystems, to know how to ride a bike, fix and flat tire and gain a sense of accomplishment after a physical day in the outdoors.
Learning to fix bikes is an important part of our program. We teach our kids how to change tires, tighten & adjust brakes and other things.
We've partnered with the City of Miami Beach in their Sustainachella Virtual Series through a live bike repair clinic. Download our tutorial on changing a tire below.
Trips for Kids Rising Up is fiscally-sponsored by Rising Up Adventures, and is an affiliate chapter of Trips for Kids, a national 501c3 nonprofit youth development and education umbrella organization. Trips for Kids’ mission is to give every kid in every community the opportunity to know the joy of riding a bike and the freedom to explore the natural world on two wheels.
Since 1988 Trips for Kids has grown into a vast network of chapters located throughout North America. Trips for Kids has enriched the lives of more than 230,000 youth through Discovery Rides, Adventure Clubs, Mobile Bike Clinics, Earn-a-Bike Workshops and Youth@Work programs that help youth to be more active, experience natural places, gain environmental and STEM-based knowledge, build confidence and develop job readiness skills.
