WHY CHILDREN RIDING BIKES IS SO IMPORTANT

PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT

No one forgets the joy of receiving their first bicycle.  A bicycle empowers a child, giving them their first taste of true independence, self-reliance, self-esteem, and helping build the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. Millions of children never experience these joys and freedoms – their lives are not favored by fortune or circumstance and a bicycle is a luxury their family cannot afford. Your donation will be the key to filling this gap and empowering these children with self-esteem.

– D. Gutierrez : Age 12

CONQUER CHILDHOOD OBESITY

A child who begins riding a bike before age 12 is 65% less likely to be obese in adulthood.

  • Nearly 1 in 5 American 4-year olds is obese
  • 70% of obese 10 to 13 year olds will be obese as adults
  • 30% of boys & 40% of girls are at risk of being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes

I would go every where I could go. Having a bike would help me get to school in the mornings. I would feel proud of myself if I had a bike.” 

– H. Alvarez : Age 11

AN ENVIRONMENTAL LEGACY

Automobile CO2 emissions are a primary contributor of green house gases. A 10 mile 5 days a week round-trip commute in a small car averaging 35mpg produces nearly a ton of CO2. Biking as an alternative is a key contribution to reducing this carbon footprint.

Exposing children at an early age to bicycling as alternative transportation sets an example for them to be environmental stewards as adults.
