With this weekend's PrimalPalooza cyclocross race benefiting the local Denver/Boulder chapter of Trips for Kids, we at 303 thought this would be a great opportunity to highlight the mission of this amazing organization. Trips for Kids' primary goal is to give under-served, urban youth the opportunity to experience and learn about the natural beauty of Colorado from the seat of a mountain bike. TFK partners with numerous youth agencies in the Denver and Boulder area, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs, Tennyson Center, Urban Peak, Girls, Inc., I Have a Dream, Denver Family Crises Center and many others to provide fun-filled, daylong mountain bike outings for small groups of children age 10 and up. The trips are led by experienced ride leaders who teach basic mountain biking skills and encourage the kids throughout the day. TDK is striving to give over 1,100 kids such an opportunity this year. In 2010, forty percent of TFK's participants were vulnerable adolescents is residential programs for abused, neglected or troubled youth. These rides really do make a difference in kids' lives:
"I usually give up when things get too hard, but this time I finished" commented one participant.
"I loved being in the mountains. That was the most rewarding things I've ever done!" was a quote from another happy rider.
