Buck Up For Bikes


(And Counting)

Since 2016, we have been supporting the future of our sport through our Buck Up For Bikes program, which raises money for the benefit of young riders across the U.S. We’ve partnered with the following national-level organizations, all of whom are committed to getting more people on bikes.

BikeFlights.com not only collects and tracks donations, but we also supplement collected contributions and cover the costs of administering and publicizing the program.

Trips For Kids

Trips for Kids (TFK) is a positive youth development organization that teaches valuable life skills with the bike at the core of our programming. TFK believes that the bike is an ideal learning laboratory that’s approachable for kids of all backgrounds and abilities. They offer hands-on STEM learning, creative problem-solving and teamwork, while nurturing a lifelong connection to healthy movement and the outdoors. Their vast network of chapters throughout North America has introduced more than 230,000 youth aged 8-18 to the valuable life lessons teachable on the bike, with an emphasis on helping those kids most in need of positive adult role models and mentors.



The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) - NICA develops mountain biking programs for youth and communities across the United States and (as of spring 2021) supports over 23,000 student-athletes in developing strong minds, bodies, character and communities. Experiences had through mountain biking can help youth develop a sense of self worth and teamwork that will impact their lives both on and off the bike. Through its core values of fun, inclusivity, equity, respect and community, NICA envisions a future where every youth is empowered to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community.
