Trips for Kids was founded by Marilyn Price in 1988 to take inner city youth in the San Francisco Bay Area on mountain bike rides. It has since expanded to include an earn-a-bike program and a well know Bicycle Thrift Shop, Re-Cyclery. In 2000 Trips for Kids became a national program. To date there are 66 Trips for Kids groups. Price says, “Trips for Kids owes its existence to the early mountain bike pioneers – they developed the sport and we are here to be sure that the mountain biking is available to everyone. Our annual party at the Broken Drum is a celebration of this wonderful sport.”
