Each year Trips for Kids takes hundreds of inner-city kids from the Bay Area on guided mountain bike adventures, many of whom have never been outside of their urban neighborhoods. In 1999 Trips for Kids became a national program. There are now 76 chapters operating in the United States, Canada and Israel.. All proceeds from our sale will go to support this great cycling program.
