Trips for Kids-Nasson

TFK_Nasson_LogoAs an affiliate of Trips for Kids, we provide the means for the youth of Sanford and Springvale to experience transformative cycling experiences, including underserved youth. Using the Mousam Way and Rail Trail, local youth can ride in quiet wooded areas minutes from downtown Sanford. Our partners, including the Junior High Bike Club and Sanford Parks and Rec. aim to build self-esteem, inspire healthy lifestyles and instill environmental values.  The Nasson Community Bicycle Center is one of the youth programs of the Nasson Community Center, founded on the campus of the former Nasson College to provide residents of Sanford and Springvale a unique indoor space for athletics, theater, youth programs, and other community needs.

Trips for Kids-Nasson  is a program of the Nasson Community Center, a recognized affiliate of Trips For Kids®  a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. Trips for Kids was founded in 1988 and now operates in over 75 locations throughout the United States and Canada. As an affiliate, we embrace Trips for Kids mission: to provide transformative cycling experiences through a network of chapters that promote healthy, recreational lifestyles, environmental awareness, and personal empowerment for young people of all communities, especially those most in need. Trips for Kids Nasson currently operates a Trail Ride Program and Earn-A-Bike Workshops for our local community. These programs aim to build self-esteem, inspire healthy lifestyles and instill environmental values.

We would not be able to give deserving youth transformative cycling experiences without the generous support of our major sponsors. We are proud to be working in partnership with these supportive businesses and individuals. Join us in saying thank you by patronizing these businesses whenever possible.

 Behind the Nasson Community Center is a wealth of trails, including a rail trail on the bed of the former Portland and Rochester Railroad, dual-track woods trails and some especially constructed mountain bike trails built by local enthusiasts. The Nasson Trips for Kids chapter  supports weekly mountain bike rides from spring through to the fall.

    My 13 year old son has out grown his bike. He said that there is a problem with the gears. Do you take bikes to fix up for other children. The bike has always been stored indoors when not in use and is in very good condition.
