MORE KIDS ON BIKES
Our Projects and Programs
Ways More Kids On Bikes helps get more kids on bike and keep them there:
Project 1. Phoenixville "Inferno" Youth Mountain Bike Team
Phoenixville "Inferno" is one of over 60 youth mountain teams in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Cycling League: "PICL" (Pronounced "Pickle"). PICL is a nationally recognized youth mountain bike league under the National Interscholastic Cycling Association; "NICA".
Phoenixville Inferno A.K.A.: "PXV MTB" was founded in 2020. Currently, PXV MTB welcomes student-athletes whose families reside in the Phoenixville, Methacton, Lower Perkiomen Valley and Norristown Area School Districts. Student-Athletes entering 6th through 12th grade are welcome to join the team. From Beginner to Expert, For-Fun and or to Race, Theres a place for everyone on the PXV MTB Team!
M.K.O.B. is dedicated to helping families navigate the climbing costs associated with the sport of mountain biking. One way we are helping get more kids on bikes is through our Affordable Bike Lease Program. A new Entry-level mountain bike can cost around $800.00-. Lightly used mountain bikes can cost much less, but still be an obstacle for many. Through the generous donations and support from Sponsors, M.K.O.B. has been able to acquire a fleet of mountain bikes leasable to the student-athlete for the PICL Season (July through October).
M.K.O.B. can also supply helmets, race jerseys, equipment and bike repairs to families as needed.
To help support these super-rad athletes, or to become a PXV MTB Season Sponsor or to make a Donate, please visit our "Get Involved" page!

Project 2. Trail Maintenance
We here at M.K.O.B. understands the importance of responsible trail stewardship.
More Kids On Bikes and Phoenixville 'Inferno" take great pride in maintaining sanctioned mountain bike trails.
Through our incredible partnership with Phoenixville Borough Department of Parks and recreation, we have been able to maintain several properties within the borough for NOT ONLY the youth MTB team to utilize, but for hikers and walkers as well!
We are thrilled that we have been able to help maintain existing trails in the borough. Cutting back overgrowth including brush, low-hanging branches, and clearing back poison ivy (why YES, yes there is an over abundance of poison ivy in the area), has been hard and incredibly itchy work. But "The trails aren't going to trim themselves!". In 2021, lead by PXV MTB, M.K.O.B. and friends donated over 352 volunteer hours to help maintain and clear trails at
Veteran's Park, Friendship Field, and Reservoir Park in Phoenixville PA.
M.K.O.B. looks forward to 2022 as we will not only continue to help support Phoenixville Area Trails, but additional ones as well~ to help,
