Mission: To inspire kids to lead healthy, active lifestyles!
Our wish is to give kids the chance to feel physically strong from an early age.
We want kids to go outside and play, have healthy eating & sleeping habits, live healthy lifestyles and encourage others to do the same.
We produce grassroots programs in Austin centered on cycling/fitness in parks, community centers, elementary schools and middle schools.
Our coaches are experts: Will Ross, a 25yr veteran of elite road, mtn and cx cycling, and Master Runner Cassie Henkiel, 4-time winner of Austin Cap10K.
We also regularly offer Family-centered events.
Social Media is at the core of our brand.
We can be found on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook engaging with kids, community, national-level wellness organizations and partners.
We teach kids to be responsible citizens online and how to engage on this powerful tool in a positive way.
We have many collaborators and champions of our mission including:
City of Austin Parks and Rec Department, City of Austin Bike Coalition, City of Austin Police Department, Austin ISD, Eanes ISD, ACE Afterschool Programs, LaunchPad, Reed & Scardino LLP, Bearded Bros Nutrition Bars, AustinNestSeekers, Glide Design, AusTexLit, ZipCar Austin & EON Corp.
