Trips for Kids Vancouver is launching the Sea to Sky Region's first Enduro Team (also the first community-supported Enduro Team!) and looking for like-minded riders to simply Ride for TFK to fundraise to send youth with barriers mountain biking.
We will be celebrating our 15th anniversary of providing free access to Vancouver's outdoor for youth with barriers in 2015 with our upcoming Summer Rides Program. Major milestone.
Concept is simple, fun and not-hyper-competitive. If you're planning on riding in any local Enduro (BC Enduro Series, Sea to Sky Series, NSMBA Toonies) simply fundraise a minimum of $200 from friends and family, we'll throw you a sweet Enduro jersey and you'll get the camaraderie of riding for a small team supporting a noble cause. Not a whole lot different than just showing up for the race!
There is currently six committed riders for 2015 with a number of men capable of cracking the top 20 at any NSMBA Toonie and a real fast lady too! All weekend warriors and all riding for fun though. We got one rider representing at the Crankworx Enduro who actually managed to secure a spot in first 30 seconds of registration!
We need the local MTB community to support TFK to ensure its future! Since 2001 we have provided access to Vancouver's great outdoors to over 3000 youth with barriers via our mountain bike excursion adventures that get kids out of the city and into nature - free of charge.
