It Takes A Village

Working for the positive development of youth is our guiding mission. You and We are that Village.

Join Our Parent Advisory Committee

The Parent Advisory Committee is a place for parents to get to know each another. You can also help guide Triangle Bikeworks as we work to provide a better experience for your child. 

Dream Staff

Kevin Hicks

Founder & Executive Director

Knowing that one small nonprofit program in North Carolina may only affect a few dozen or so youth every year, Mr. Hicks likes the starfish parable in which a beach goer is throwing stranded starfish back into the sea. When another person points out how one person can’t possibly save all the starfish the beach goer responds, “But it makes a difference to the ones I throw back”.


What is our vision for the long ride?

It takes planning before leaving for a long ride; there must be a destination and another plan to implement when you reach there.

We use the long ride as a metaphor for life. We want our kids to have a goal, a plan, and a passion for their journey. We want them to enjoy the ride and learn from the challenges. We want them to grow physically, socially, and academically, no matter what obstacles they face.

"I was able to see what most people wouldn’t see. I was able to learn what people wouldn’t learn because it’s a hidden treasure that school tries to cover up." ~ SpokenRev Youth
