Trips for Kids

Trips for Kids is a national  organization which is dedicated to providing mountain bike rides for inner city  disadvantaged kids.  Santa Fe Trails Bicycle Shop in conjunction with the  Leavenworth Youth Achievement Center has sponsored rides on Wednesday afternoons  for the Leavenworth program.  We have approximately 6 – 10 children in the  program.  Each ride is accompanied by at  least two adults every  time.  We provide first aid, bike lessons, limited bike and helmet sizing,  guidance and supervision.

Trips for Kids

The rides are typically  3 – 5 miles in length around the Leavenworth Community.  Our capstone ride  is the River Trail Mountain Bike Ride in Lawrence, Kansas.  This is a 9.5  mile mountain bike trail along the Kansas River.  The trail is fun and  safe.

Our organization provides 5 bicycles for the children to  ride.  We provide transport for the bikes to and from the  YAC.  The YAC provide transportation for the children and a  snack.  There are no costs for children to participate although their  parents/guardians must sign a waiver.

First Trip for Kids is March 23rd at 4:30pm. Parents can sign their child up with Deb at the Youth Achievement Center. Volunteers are need. Contact the shop if you would like to volunteer.
