In keeping with our goal of youth development we have expanded our program to include a National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) mountain bike race team. With this new branch of our program we have increased the age of our program participants from 8-14 through to High School graduation.
Through the race team our teenage club members are learning the value of teamwork, mutual support, dedication and having the tenacity and heart to reach a goal.
This program also supports staying in school, healthy eating and fitness in a drug free environment.
The B.i.k.e.-Syracuse Video Story
"Our youth bike program supports education and teaches personal responsibility,
achievement and confidence through Adventure, specifically biking. We work with
low income children between the ages of 8 - 14 through a program of Adventure - bicycling
and learning through experience.
"Adventure is not only hanging on a rope on a side of a mountain or participating
in a biking road ride/race or riding a mountain bike down a steep ravine....
Adventure is an attitude that we apply to every part of our lives. Facing new challenges,
seizing new opportunities, testing our resources against the unknown and unpredictable;
and, in the process, discovering our own unique potential."
