Exploring Paths ensures that children have access to bikes, helmets, one-on-one mentorship, journals, to bike paths in and out of NYC boroughs to youths between the ages of 8-18. We provide the support and encouragement necessary to ensure children remain active and healthy both physically and emotionally through exercise.
Participants are encouraged to progress at their own pace with goal-based achievement methods to ensure successful milestones, and must exhibit regular attendance and positive participation in school.
City to nature paths are encouraged and fun educational activities are mixed in-between for group activities.
The following is provided:
- One-on-One mentorship
- Fun filled educational activities during group sessions
- Guidance on how to complete longer rides with a predetermined distance or geographic destination
- Materials needed in order to for each participant to create a showcase of his or her explorations and adventures each year in the format of their choice, guidebook/map/story etc. to share with the group and friends and families along the way
- Guidance and exploration of options open to them both on and off the path
