Bicycle Trips For Kids

Bicycle Trips For Kids

     By Matt Nowak

Kansas topography lends itself very well to bicycling, especially to

mountain biking, where riders can get out into the fields and woodlands on

old roads and trails.  Trips For Kids is a national mountain biking program

for school-age youths that is supported by major corporations that provide

new bicycles, helmets, first-aid kits, energy bars, etc. to new TFK

chapters.  Get your kids outdoors on bikes by forming a TFK chapter in your

community.  Any service club, school district, city, youth center, church,

youth groups like scouts and 4-H, etc. can form a new chapter by contacting

Trips For Kids,   And communities can benefit by conducting bicycle activities and events by drawing more people into town.  Mountain bikes are a great way to get to a local fishing hole, too.
