Default Help underprivileged children get there first bike

Who doesn't remember their first bike? What's the magic? Why the intense
universal desire to have your own bike? Is it the world beyond your own
front yard discovered or perhaps it's because you get to go really fast, all
on your own, controlled by only you? A bike is a rite of passage for a child
and beyond the fun, the smile and the wind in your hair, a bike provides
many things:
a.. Teaches balance, strength and coordination.
b.. Encourages independence with responsibility.
c.. Provides a practical means of transportation.
d.. Benefits health at a time when juvenile Type II Diabetes and obesity
are on the rise.
e.. Boosts self esteem through a sense of skill mastery.
f.. Increases socialization with others who share a love for the outdoors
and provides opportunities for learning about nature.
g.. Stirs the imagination.
h.. Puts high risk children in contact with other children engaged in
productive, healthy activities.
