Trips for Kids - Robert Alan Ping (Executive Director) and Andy Phelps (Sponsorship Manager)

June 27, 2018

For the last 30 years Trips for Kids has connected 200,000 children in the US with the power of the bicycle.

After speaking with founder Marilyn Price in a separate interview, I was excited to sit down with Executive Director Robert Alan Ping, and Sponsorship Manager Andy Phelps to hear what lies ahead for the organization as they march towards their goal of reaching half a million children through their programs.

These guys are deeply passionate about youth development and really growing the leaders of tomorrow. I hope you enjoy this interview recorded at the 2018 Sea Otter Classic.

We built this interview series from the title of our newest children’s picture book Taking The Lead that follows our animal characters along a journey to open a local bike shop and inspire their town to ride. We hope you enjoy these personal stories from bike industry executives, non-profit leaders, pro athletes, and families just like yours who are celebrating kids on bikes and inspiring families to get off the couch... and out for a ride.
