About

Ride Club is a four-week after-school program that enables youth ages 8-18 to explore Philadelphia by bike! Through group rides, program participants engage with natural, historic, and artistic resources in their communities, introducing youth to the joys of bicycle adventure. With lessons in bike safety and the rules of the road, Ride Club stresses safe riding techniques on urban roads and bike paths, discusses bike maintenance, and reinforces health and fitness.

Volunteers act as roles models, ride leaders, traffic marshals, and coaches, making sure youth adhere to safe riding rules, engaging more experienced youth, and encouraging newer riders.
