Verde Valley Bikes for Kids now qualifies for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit



 Verde Valley Bikes for Kids 

is focused on getting kids in the Verde Valley outside and  active by providing them with bicycles, helmets, and active lifestyle encouragement. 

Verde Valley Bikes for Kids™ (the Program) has helped create and run after school mountain bike clubs at:

  • Beaver Creek Elementary School in Rimrock
  • Oak Creek Elementary School in Cornville
  • Cottonwood Community and Dr. Daniel Bright Elementary Schools in Cottonwood
  • West Sedona Elementary School
  • Mountain View Academy
  • Camp Verde Elementary School

where over 65% of the students receive free or reduced lunches under the National School Lunch Program. The Program purchases and maintains bikes, helmets and gear for the schools’ clubs. VVCC members and school teacher coaches teach riding skills, basic bicycle maintenance and ride with students twice weekly.

Each spring, we award new bikes to students who have earned them by exceeding expectations for grades, behavior, attendance, and citizenship. These awarded bikes also come with free maintenance for as long as the student owns the bike. 

The Program provides an annual grant to the local NICA team, helping defray coaches’ out-of-pocket expenses and encouraging team member volunteering at trail workdays. The Program distributes free bike helmets to kids annually at the Sedona Celebration of Spring.
