The future of bicycling depends on getting kids on bikes. Unfortunately, the number of kids in the U.S. who ride regularly has dropped 20% since 2007, as childhood obesity has reached epidemic levels and depression among adolescents increases. The physical and mental benefits of biking are well established, but millions of children and teens across the U.S. lack access to bikes and safe places to ride them. PeopleForBikes partners with national, state and local organizations that support youth bicycling, including Youth Cycling Coalition, a group of 10 youth-focused bicycling organizations, and our partnership with Outride, a nonprofit dedicated to building more diverse, equitable youth cycling communities. In addition, our Industry Community Grants Program helps fund bike projects across the U.S. to get more people (especially kids) on bikes.
