RRCS Bike Club
Outride is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of youth through cycling. Through research, school-based cycling programs, and matching grants, Outride harnesses the benefits of cycling for the cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical well-being of youth while also helping to cultivate inclusive cycling communities.
Bicycles have the power to make lives better — they bring people and communities together, motivate us to become better humans, and help us take advantage of what the world has to offer. At Outride, we are committed to breaking down barriers so that all youth have access to bicycles and safe places to ride. We believe that bicycles not only have the ability to improve the health of our youth and to bring opportunity, agency, freedom, andjoy to those who have access to the power of two wheels.
Riding for Focus
To young people everywhere:
May you experience
the joy, freedom, and
agency that comes
from riding a bicycle.
The purpose of Riding for Focus is to promote cycling as an outlet for students to improve their
cognitive, physical, and socio-emotional well-being. At the end of the curriculum, students
become certified as “Road Ready” after they have gained the knowledge and learned the
skills to cycle safely. As a highly effective physical education program, Riding for Focus also
seeks to support students in their physical, emotional, and social journey. Riding for Focus
provides the program implementer/s with tools to teach physical literacy so students can
develop a value in physical activity for its health benefits, social interaction, self-expression,
and personal enjoyment. From here on out, we will refer to Riding for Focus program
implementers as “Champions.”
