Mission Statement

Ride Up Grades seeks to bridge the transportation and health divide in NYC through youth cycling programs.

We break down the barriers to entry for young people from all backgrounds to start commuting and competing.

We believe that the cycling world benefits from diversity, and that ALL young people can benefit from access to cycling. We seek to level the playing field by creating equity and access in road cycling and racing, and by building networks of diverse, confident and hard pedaling future leaders.
