Charlotte Re-Cyclery supporting Trips For Kids Charlotte All sales from the Charlotte Re-Cyclery support Trips for Kids Charlotte. Share your love of cycling with someone smaller than you! Trips for Kids Charlotte is a nonprofit that provides mountain bike rides - as well as the opportunity to Earn-A-Bike - for children ages 10 to 15 from Charlotte's fragile neighborhoods.

The organization uses mountain biking and related activities to teach youngsters lessons in personal responsibility, self-empowerment, achievement, environmental awareness, physical fitness and community service. The Earn-A-Bike program is at the organization's Re-Cyclery in NoDa (corner of 15th and N. Davidson streets), where the public may also donate "dusty but not rusty" bikes or buy a refurbished bike. Proceeds from the Re-Cyclery help fund the overall program.

When you work for a nonprofit long enough you can literally recite your mission in your sleep. When asked what Trips for Kids does, my standard response is that we connect kids to riding, wrenching and nature using a  simple yet powerful tool, the bicycle. And for all intents and purposes t

How do bicycles help the world? Something I ask myself quasi-regularly. I believe bicycles are important. I’ve learned and witnessed many stories of bicycles and how they shape, move and influence people. I began exploring my own answer to how bicycles help my world. Significantly. Beyond my role ...

March is Women’s History Month. Meet Paula Fricke the founder of Trips for Kids Charlotte. What would our world be without the work of women? For one, our organization would not exist without Paula’s passion and dedication. Paula has been getting youth on bikes since 1999 and is the definition of a living legend. Every Saturday for 20 years, Paula rode her bike and enrolled numerous volunteers, supporters and youth in our programs.

The core of our organization is the Ride Program, an opportunity to expose youth to nature, and the joys of mountain biking. It teaches confidence to overcome obstacles, choosing the right line and respect for the environment. In 2020, despite a shortened season, TFKC was able to adapt and provide 5 experiences that engaged and impacted 65 youth! Ride on!⁠⠀

The Bicycle is a tool for social change and forward momentum. It shows us that distances can be covered one pedal stroke at a time. Remember to keep pedaling, we are not there yet.

50 Kids completed the EAB programs in 2020⁠⠀
Despite all odds and a shortened program season, TFKC was able to provide access to bicycles and bicycle safety to 50 youth in 2020. We believe the bicycle is a tool for physical and mental health and social change. Empowering youth to take to two wheels builds confidence and expands their world beyond the phone or computer screen. Visit www.tripsforkidscharlotte.org for more info on our available programs.⁠⠀

Bikes for a better future in 2021

If 2020 has shown us anything, it's that the value of self care and health is important. The bicycle is a tool that not only offers access to opportunity through transportation, but serious benefits in solo-driven physical and mental health. Many youth have spent nearly a year indoors and behind a computer screen due to the pivots in schooling.

We need your help to engage youth with cycling and a self sufficient means of exercise and mental escape through two wheels in 2021 and beyond!

This year for #GivingTuesday through the end of the 2020, consider giving the gift of support for the programs and mission of Trips for Kids Charlotte! Help us make an impact in the youth of today for a better tomorrow!

RE-CYCLERY RETREAT! We took some time off to explore the beautiful Greenbrier Trail in West Virginia. We rode about 120 miles in 4 days and 3 nights. Fires were built, stories were told, and Fritos were consumed. We saw 2 bears, 3 eagles, 48 chipmunks, 1 groundhog, and bunch of giant white dogs. Riding bikes together for four days straight was a total pleasure. Can't wait to do it again!⁠⠀

A note on the land we rode on: It is important to acknowledge that we are always on stolen indigenous land. We learned from @nativelandnet that land of Greenbrier trail belongs to the Tsoyaha (Yuchi is what others have named them)

From the Tsoyaha page:

“We celebrate the Tsoyaha Yudgiha for many reasons... Today, they are a very much forgotten Indigenous people that played a crucial role in the trade, religion and state craft of the Mississippian Mound Building Culture of Eastern North America. Currently, the Yuchi Culture is threatened by the genocidal policies of the United States Government, and by the expressed efforts to write the Yuchi out of history. They are a unique people with a unique language -- one that holds many of the keys to understanding the Mound Building Culture, because the language is an isolate that has remained quite pristine, used as a liturgical language, and encodes much of the Southeastern culture within its memes. All Yuchi remain defiantly proud of our heritage and our Ancestors. We are the Children of the Sun -- a noble people.”

Please join us in learning about the land you are standing on by visiting @nativelandnet

Join Trips For Kids Charlotte for our annual Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day! Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is an annual event that seeks to introduce the joy of mountain biking to the next generation. This year we are celebrating youth mountain biking a little bit differently due to the Pandemic. Parents, Mentors, older siblings, we need your help to spread the word of mountain biking by engaging the youth close to you to get out and ride and connect with nature on October 3rd. Share the experience with your youth and on social media with the hashtag #tfkcTkmbd2020 and tag @charlotterecyclery. On October 5th, we will draw the name of the post for a special Trips For Kids prize!⁠⠀
