Helping with Horsepower™

Helping with Horsepower, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, that empowers and encourages women and girls who are at risk or are victims of abuse. The organization has developed several programs that have shown proven results including their SpiritHorse Program, Entrepreneur Experience and the nationally recognized Helping With Horsepower Bike Rebuild Program. Founder Laura Klock explains: “Using riding and racing as a parenting tool with my two daughters, I have experienced firsthand how motorcycling can teach us not only about ourselves, but also powerful life lessons. Our hope for this project is to encourage and transform these girls by repairing what has been damaged on a motorcycle, and also in their lives.”

Strider Education Foundation / All Kids Bike

Learning to ride a bike builds the confidence that changes everything! The opportunity to ride should be available to everyone, regardless of their physical, mental, or financial abilities.

The goal of All Kids Bike is simple: they want all kids to know how to ride a bike by the time they begin the first grade.

Imagine a nation where every child is taught in school, along with reading, writing, and arithmetic, how to ride a bike. All Kids Bike® is a campaign of the Strider Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, which provides superior balance bikes and a proven Learn-To-Ride curriculum to organizations that seek to transform the lives of children with riding.
