Enjoy the Ride!
Spring is around the corner and it's about time to get outside! Charlotte has an extensive Greenway system [https://www.charlotteagenda.com/…/complete-guide-charlotte…/] perfect for being outside and getting fresh air & exercise. Need some bikes for you and the kids to hit the trails? Be sure to visit the Charlotte Re-Cyclery as you shop around [https://www.tripsforkidscharlotte.org/re-cyclery].
The Re-Cyclery sells refurbished donated “dusty not rusty” bicycles to the public. Proceeds from the Charlotte Re-Cyclery help support Trips for Kids. Trips for Kids Charlotte is a chapter of Trips for Kids, a national 501c3 nonprofit youth development and education umbrella organization. Trips for Kids’ mission is to give every kid in every community the opportunity to know the joy of riding a bike and the freedom to explore the natural world on two wheels.
Not only can you find a great deal on a bike, you can check out their programs. Trips for Kids programs include Discovery Rides, Adventure Clubs, Mobile Bike Clinics, Earn-a-Bike Workshops and Youth@Work programs that help youth to be more active, experience natural places, gain environmental and STEM-based knowledge, build confidence and develop job readiness skills.
