A Club for Kids

Safe Cycling Skills Builds Confidence There are a lot of reasons kids should be helped to develope an interest in bicycling, including confidence, exercise, knowledge of safe cycling rules, and skills.
Now, in New Jersey, there is a new organization that apparently has high hopes of helping kids in the Linden area, and beyond, learn about cycling, of both the racing, and recreational varieties.

The group has a website, some sponsors, equipment, a calendar of events, and a Mission Statement:

To help kids achieve a higher level of fitness, keep them out of trouble, from becoming depressed, or over weight, all of which can lead to health problems such as diabetes, to help them from becoming violent from the lack of activity, to keep them away from smoking, and have them do things with their parents.

Give kids a bike to use who can't afford one.
This club is not about cycling alone it's about teaching kids....

The number one goal is to get this program expanded to all schools where we can offer a scholarship to leading kids.

To learn more about the program. and what they hope to instill in youth by teaching them cycling skills, go here:

I wish them luck in their endeavor.
