Trips for Kids: We Need Volunteers!

With the time change over the weekend and more daylight in the evenings, we are going to start the Trips for Kids mountain bike rides back up at Munson Hills Trails, meeting every other week on Wednesday or Thursday evenings (5pm-7pm) and Saturday afternoons (2pm-4pm).

Trips For Kids® provides the materials, moral support and inspiration that an individual or group needs to help disadvantaged kids discover the joy of mountain biking (off-road cycling).   This year we will be working with the The Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend, Palmer Munroe Teen Center and Boys Town North Florida to reach over 150 kids and share with them the fun and excitement of cycling.

With all these kids, we need a lot of help from volunteers like yourself to help chaperone the kids and ride with them (yes, you get to volunteer by riding your bike!).  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact  Kids on Bikes Director, Jack Tomassetti at and let him know which days work best for you!

If you are unable to help volunteer, consider making a donation to the Kids on Bikes program.  Your donation will be used to help with the upkeep and maintenance of the bicycles, warehouse and keep kids riding bicycles.  Please send a check to:
