This program targets ages 7 to 14-years-old, but all ages are welcomed. At each session the participants will be divided into groups by age and skill level.
The Trail Buddies Program is free to the participants.
Cape Fear SORBA provides and maintains all the bicycles, gear, and supplies used for the program. They have been able to fund this not for profit program, through the donations of local individuals and businesses.
This Saturday, the SORBA crew will be guiding a group of 20 kids who are part of the First Baptist Church of Wilmington youth group.
