Bikin' Dads Adventures

Bikin' Dads Adventures was founded with hopes to encourage area fathers to be more involved in the lives of their children. While our "adventures" are geared more in the positive effects of BICYCLE's it's not the only way we hope to connect.

We also provide skills clinics, personal coaching and community engagement opportunities. Have a corporate, school or civic event? We offer a most epic bicycle rodeo course for both kids and adults alike, bringing nothing but smiles for miles! 

Our goals:
-Leading by Example
-Active Life leads to a Happy & Healthy Life
-Provide connections in life counseling, coaching and rehabilitation
-Life Encouragement

Continuously in the pursuit of both event sponsors, monetary donation support and other forms to keep the adventures going. All funds collected through the years are directly re-invested into the program in marketing materials, event supplies, equipment upgrade and maintenance of same and the long term goal of a Bikin’ Dads Adventure Van to haul both equipment and the staff to the vast amount of community engaging opportunities. We have also been able to provide a few bicycles to area fathers and kids that needed that “upgrade” in life, giving that boost that one needs every once in awhile.
