RIDING for focus Grant to open January 2022
Riding for Focus (R4F) is our middle school-based physical education program. Developed as a result of our initial research findings, R4F promotes cycling as an outlet for students to improve their cognitive, physical, and socio-emotional well-being. Schools can acquire R4F via two pathways - by purchasing the program, or for schools serving marginalized communities, by applying for a program grant. Schools are provided with everything they need to get their 6th-8th grade students riding, including bikes, helmets, curriculum, and intensive teacher training. Riding for Focus has been implemented in nearly 200 schools—providing cycling education and access to 50,000 students to bikes during their school day—and 57% of schools in our R4F network serve communities where the majority of their students qualify for free/reduced lunches.
The Outride Fund empowers communities to launch youth cycling programs. Through dollar for dollar matching grants in youth cycling education, youth rider development, or for trails and pump track projects, the Outride Fund makes fundraising faster and easier. The process is simple—an organization launches a fundraising campaign with Outride’s fundraising platform and applies for match funds up to $15,000. Since its inception in the fall of 2019, the Outride Fund has awarded over $1,000,000 in matching grants to over one hundred organizations across the country. Let’s add your dream project to the list.
