TWO WHEEL VIEW provides life changing experiences for young people. TWO WHEEL VIEW is a mission driven organization that creates opportunities for young people to learn and practice lessons in leadership, health and wellness, self esteem, achievement, and environmental stewardship through their participation in bicycle education programs and trips.
About Our Charity
TWO WHEEL VIEW creates opportunities for young people to learn and practice lessons in leadership, health and wellness, self-esteem, achievement and environmental stewardship through bicycle education programs and volunteer service trips.
Bike Club: This program uses the bicycle as a tool to develop leadership and teamwork skills as well as bike mechanic capabilities in youth ages 11-17. Students who complete the program earn a community donated, recycled bicycle of their own, along with a brand new lock and helmet.
Bike Trips: TWO WHEEL VIEW offers a grass-roots approach to responsible travel that empowers students, cultivates their leadership skills and allows them to gain valuable experiences and make meaningful connections. Two Wheel View trips align with school and youth organizations curriculum and goals.
TWO WHEEL VIEW believes that all youth should have the opportunity to expand their physical and cultural boundaries. There are many youth, due to financial or social limitations, that are never exposed to what may provide the greatest source of learning – real life experiences that bring home valuable insights, logical steps for positive change and the opportunity to build important resiliency skills.
By exposing young people to new challenges, other cultures and diverse environments through an intense hands-on experience, TWO WHEEL VIEW believes we can open young people's eyes to new ways of thinking and positively impact them to create positive change in their own lives and communities for the future.

"I brought back so much more than I packed for Argentina, and it wasn’t just souvenirs. I brought back a huge boost of confidence. I am so grateful Two Wheel View gave me the opportunity because now that I know what I can achieve if I put my mind to it, I am more open to challenging myself. "

"TWV’s offers experiences to promising young adults in a structured manner that would not otherwise be available to them. For me, donating to TWV, and serving on its board, is a satisfying way to lend a helping hand to kids, knowing that the experience will help shape their lives for the better. "
