About Trips for Kids- CAT

Trips for Kids-CAT provides mountain bike opportunities for kids who don’t usually get a chance to do such activities. A project of the The Center for Appropriate Transport (CAT), Trips for Kids-CAT is a partnership with Trips for Kids.

Trips for Kids-CAT is a member of Trips for Kids® International – a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Marin County, California. Founded in 1988 and now operating in over 80 locations throughout the United States, Canada and Israel, Trips for Kids (TFK®)  International has opened the world of cycling to over 100,000 at-risk youth through guided mountain bike rides and job training/earn-a-bike programs.  All TFK chapters, modeled on the foundation of the original TFK Marin program, are managed and operated independently at the local level but share a common goal. Their mission is to use bicycles as a vehicle for lessons in confidence building, achievement, health, fitness and environmental awareness through the development of practical skills and the simple act of having fun.

We provide:

  • mountain bikes
  • helmets
  • transportation
  • lunch
  • knowledgable guides

Group rates start at $250 if you provide your own transportation, and goes to $400-420 if transportation is provided by Trips For Kids.

Each youth will need to fill out a waiver form.

Contact us at (541) 686-9885 or trips4kids@catoregon.org for more information.

Trips For Kids-CAT operates under a special use permit with Willamette National Forest, and is an equal opportunity recreation service provider.
