Riviera Youth Bike Team

Organization Mission

The mission of the Riviera Youth Bike Team (RYBT) is to create a long-term positive impact on the health and fitness of ‘at-risk’ children by developing and fostering a connection to cycling. We cater to children struggling with issues such as obesity, inactivity, low self-esteem, financial hardship, and learning differences. Our goal is to give children all the tools they need to reach and maintain their health and fitness goals in a fun, organized, and supportive team environment. We strive to provide high-quality coaching and individual attention to all children on the team, so that they can become responsible and safe cyclists. Because we realize that family support is imperative to making lasting changes, parent participation is encouraged on all rides in the RYBT final event. Our team operates on multiple levels over the course of 10 months or more, depending on the interest of the child and family.
