Kids Ride Club began in 1996 as a collaborative effort of the New York Cycle Club, Woodhull Hospital and Recycle-A-Bicycle. In 2013, the Club averaged 40 cyclists per ride for 15 trips throughout the season and covered all 5 boroughs & beyond. Collectively, our young and young at heart cyclists burned an average of 16,500 calories and travelled 980,000 miles. Six young people were awarded Kindles in recognition of their academic performance. Help us keep this program strong!
