El Grupo is a non-profit youth cycling team in Tucson, Arizona that affords the opportunities of cycling to local teens who otherwise would not get the chance.
Our mission is to empower youth through bicycles. We aim to instill traits such as courage, integrity, life-long healthy habits, and sportsmanship through bicycle advocacy, riding and racing bicycles. We embrace all forms of cycling from road and mountain bike racing to bicycle touring and daily commuting. El Grupo uses the bicycle as a means for positive development for at-risk youth that would not otherwise have healthy, skill-building and goal-oriented activities in their lives.
We are getting youth on bikes, and they in turn are teaching and inspiring other kids (and adults) to ride, enjoy, and love bikes, too. El Grupo is developing the next generation of cycling enthusiasts in Tucson.
El Grupo teaches safe cycling to different community groups and schools. In 2009, we taught over 500 kids bike safety and provided free bike valet parking for over 1,000 riders at 10 events.
We are developing the next generation of cyclist enthusiasts in Tucson.
Our two focus areas are:
•Educating and mentoring younger kids, especially in under-served neighborhoods, on how to bicycle safely (and letting them know that bikes are cool!)
•Hosting bike valet parking at community events, providing a valuable service to those who choose to ride and inspiring others to join them. Hire us!
This scavenger hunt sounds like lots of fun: 10 riddles to solve and 10 objects to find. Partcipants will ride (at their chosen pace) within a 2 mile radius of downtown searching for the objects, and enjoying the beautiful fall weather as well. With all the objects in hand, then they will head to the finish with a puzzle to solve. Good luck to all.
