Program Background

Mighty Bikes is a Non-Profit Youth Mountain Biking Organization that was formed in 2000. It was created by an active group of friends who wanted to help their children develop the skills to enjoy the Anchorage area mountain biking trails.  Since that time, Mighty Bikes has grown into a very popular program involving 300 youth  and over 50 volunteer coaches.
