A Bicycle. Such a simple invention from the 19th century. Now, nearly 200 years later, billions of people of all ages not only rely on a bicycle as a primary means of transportation, but as a fun and easy way to exercise in America’s Great Outdoors.
A Youth Activity ProgramTrips for Kids is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to that cause. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area with chapters across the United States, Canada and Israel, its mission is to provide mountain bike outings, job trainings, health and environmental education to youths. Over 79,000 youths have participated in this program since being founded in 1988 by Marilyn Price.
