Sausalito Bikes for Kids was established last year to provide age appropriate bicycles for Sausalito/Marin City elementary school children who “earned” new bikes and helmets by completing an educational curriculum that focused on bike safety, health and fitness. Last year 135 children earned brand new bicycles. This year the proceeds from the program will go to create the first-ever Bike Club at an elementary school in Northern California. Sausalito school children who complete the educational curriculum this year will be charter members of the the Bike Club which will provide loaner bicycles, bike trips and bike storage at the schools. Share a special gift by donating $50, $100, or $200 towards the Sausalito Bikes for Kids program.
