The Trips for Kids – Pocono Flow chapter of Northeast Pennsylvania, an initiative of Youth Infusion, Inc., was chartered in July 2010. Since then, Youth Infusion, Inc. has been building its ride program which incorporates personal challenges, physical activity, and environmental awareness.
Youth of all ages will be encouraged to participate in bike rides and families are also welcome. Equipment (including bikes and helmets) is available for youth to use on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. Healthy snacks, drinks and sunscreen will also be provided. An environmental expert will participate on each ride, sharing key information with riders about environmental and health issues.
Each ride session will include the following components:
· Safety Lesson
· Riding Skill
· Educational Speaker (as part of service-learning activity)
· Group Ride
