Come Mountain Biking with TrailsforYouth.Org

Overcoming Obstacles

TrailsforYouth.Org is a non-profit that brings at-risk youth on mountain bike excursions in the Washington DC-area. We incorporate education on self esteem, health and the environment with bike skills, trail etiquette, and FUN into all of our nature trail rides.

We are frequently requested to schedule organizational youth group rides. If you would like to have your youth group experience the joys and health benefits of these nature bike rides, we can work to schedule your event.  Email Julie at Julie@tfkmetrodc.org to schedule your ride.

A few facts:

  • Events are @3 hours long;
  • We provide experienced ride leaders, trained in CPR w/ clear background security check;
  • Water bottles for the kids to keep (if available);
  • Use of all necessary equipment (helmets and bicycles);
  • Snacks and lunch (if applicable).

An amazing event and we only charge a modest fee of $150 total to help us defer our costs. That’s less than going to the movies!

Here’s what you need to do!

  • Email us to arrange a date at julie@trailsforyouth.org. We can arrange weekday or weekend ride events.
  • Recruit a maximum of ten kids.
  • Give participants release forms (available below) to be filled out and then signed by their parents. No child can participate without a completed waiver and medical release form completed.
  • Arrange for two adults from the agency to provide transportation, supervision, and join us on the ride (at least one ageny adult must accompany us on the ride).
  • Call one week prior to the trip with the heights of ALL participants who need a bike.
