We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers of all biking abilities and gender identities to lead our easy-to-follow curriculum. Groups meet once a week across Trenton and the surrounding area. Email info@girlsingear.org for more information about specific locations.

Neither coaching nor biking experience is required. All you need to bring is your most joyful and dynamic self - we'll provide the rest. All coaches receive training and are supported by staff throughout their volunteer experience. We supply all lesson plans and coaching materials.

We teach life skills through bike skills for girls ages 5+. We find bikes to be an extraordinary tool for change in ourselves and our communities as a conduit for lessons on kindness, compassion, and inner strength. We do this through age-appropriate comprehensive curriculums that weave together social-emotional learning (SEL) with bike handling skills. Our no-questions-asked scholarship policy means that everyone can ride with us.

Each lesson has a theme that ties together the opening conversation, connections to biking, and a skill-building section. In this environment, conversations on asking for help lead to understanding how to change gears on a bicycle; resilience and grit are framed around what to do if you fall off your bicycle; and assertive communication opens up a lesson on hand-signaling while riding.
