Each year Trips for Kids takes hundreds of inner-city kids from the Bay Area on guided mountain bike adventures, many of whom have never been outside of their urban neighborhoods. In 1999 Trips for Kids became a national program. There are now 69 chapters operating in the United States, Canada and Israel. All proceeds from the sale will go to support the cycling program. If you miss the sale, please note that the Re-Cyclery Bike Thrift Shop at 610 4th Street in downtown San Rafael is open throughout the year Tuesday – Friday from noon – 6 PM, and Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM- 4 PM.
