"When I first got on the bike, I was like, 'Oh No...' and I thought I couldn't even make it like one mile or even one lap around a circle. But, to see how far we've gone from the start to the finish, it felt really nice to know that I actually did that!"

- Manaiaya, Age 12

Trips for Kids Marin envisions a world where all children reach their highest potential. We believe that all kids, regardless of their gender, race or socio-economic status deserve a life where they can self-actualize and be the best they can be - physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Our mission is to provide transformative cycling experiences for underserved youth. We focus on kids eight to seventeen years old. We aim to address those needs through our signature programs: Trail Rides, Earn-A-Bike, and Mobile Bike Workshops, as well as through our Re-Cyclery Bike Shop.

We strive to:

  • Build self-esteem
  • Inspire healthy lifestyles
  • Connect youth to the natural world
  • Inspire joy

Your support will help our Trail Rides Program

Trips for Kids Marin started in 1988 with this flagship program! Trail Rides take groups of kids on mountain bike adventures (many for the first time) in gorgeous local, state, and national parks. Participants learn bike skills, gain self-confidence, engage in physical exercise, and explore and connect with nature in beautiful open spaces throughout the Bay Area.

We partner with over 40 community-based agencies and schools in the Bay Area. Many of these agencies serve kids from historically underserved communities and rely heavily on Trips for Kids Marin for high-quality, engaging, and fun outdoor experiences.

With highly skilled Ride Leaders and a fleet of 80 bikes, we provide everything needed for kids to experience the joy of exploring the world from the seat of a mountain bike. Trips for Kids Marin offers two programs that include single day, intro-to-mountain biking Discovery Rides as well as Adventure Bike Clubs - a series of rides where students build upon their experience and see improvement in skill, endurance, and enjoyment over the course of weeks or months. Each program can be tailored to meet the needs and experience of the group.

Describe your Trail Ride experience in one word:

"Probably just fulfilled. That emotion like more filled, more full. Because it has been really bland at school and home. So, it is nice to go out and see something new!"

- Asher, Age 13
