About Bikes For Kids for Utah
PROVIDING A POSITIVE EDUCATION AND CYCLING EXPERIENCE FOR AT-RISK YOUTH.
Providing a Positive Education and Cycling Experience for Disadvantaged Children. Bikes for Kids Utah, a non-profit organization, was formed in 2006 to provide at-risk youth with free bicycles on an annual basis. These bikes are not only an inexpensive and fun way to get to school, but they are a great tool to teach positive habits, responsibility and safety through exercise.
The main focus of the organization is to provide at-risk youth with a positive education and effective life-skills learned through owning and riding a bicycle. To do so they are instructed in bicycle safety, the importance of obeying traffic signals, and wearing helmets. They are also encouraged and taught the importance of regular exercise and how riding a bicycle can provide a fun way to be active. A bicycle also offers them an alternative means of transportation which can help them feel more confidant and self-reliant.Learn More
