Special thanks

...to the partners that make Ride Up Grades a reality.

 

Without these forward-thinking companies, the hills would be a grind.

TREK Bicycles believes that the bicycle is a simple solution to the world's complex problems, and they demonstrated that by being the first major corporation to support Ride Up Grades. Trek is the backbone of the free kids summer ride camp, as well as our partner for the Trek Road Cycling Scholarship. They generously open their NYC stores to us as the camp base of operations, as well as provie the bikes to do so. Their staff works overtime during the summers to make a free road cycling camp a reality. We can't overstate the importance of their support. Thank you Trek!

Specialized Outride Fund is a matching grant program that enables us to buy supplies that are otherwise not covered, such as insurance, sponsorship bike parts and repairs, and to hire coaches that work tirelessly at the camp. The creation of the fund is hugely important to support the youth participation in the cycling industry. 

Ostroy  is an integral part of the New York City cycling community and provides the gear designs for the Trek camp as well as the jerseys and bibs for their matching grant program that enables us to buy supplies that are otherwise not covered, such as insurance, sponsorship bike parts and repairs, and to hire coaches that work tirelessly at the camp. The creation of the fund is hugely important to support the youth participation in the cycling industry. 

Major Taylor Iron Riders initially provided helmets and serves as a point of contact to ride with sponsorship and scholarship winners.
