Imagine 200 miles of smiles

In July, some of the brightest smiles could be found on the faces of the many youth who proudly crossed the finish line of the 200-mile Seattle to Portland Classic.

Whether they’re riding for fun or riding to school, our youth programs teach safe riding to more than 25,000 kids annually through events in schools and around the community.

Every year, our Group Health Basics of Bicycling program reaches 14,000 elementary students in four school districts, teaching them the skills they need to ride safely for the rest of their lives.

Meanwhile, the Major Taylor Project brings together over 200 teenagers from underserved communities at four south King County high schools. Through a year-round youth development program, the project promotes cycling as a form of exercise, recreation, and transportation, while integrating the importance of, leadership, community activism, bicycle maintenance, safety, and working toward individual goals. For many, the program culminates in reaching the finish line of the STP.

Thousands more are reached through events such as Bike to School Month, summer camps,  and riding classes.

Your gift helps create daily exercise habits, teach safe biking skills, and foster the lifelong joy of bicycling.
