We truly believe more people on bicycles is the path to helping individuals live healthier and happier lives. By supporting, maintaining, and building accessible bike paths, trail networks, and inclusive communities, we hope to continue spreading the joy of cycling


The Be Good Foundation’s mission is to enrich communities using the bicycle as a catalyst for healing, empowerment and evolution. The programs we support create opportunities for outdoor exploration, personal discovery and humanitarian service at local, national and global levels.


TheBicycleNutKids engages thousands of young people in the lifelong activity of mountain biking. By teaching off-road cycling skills to youngsters from ages 5 – 18 and engaging them in a healthy, productive program we ensure a new generation is discovering the joy of bicycles.

Designed to be all-inclusive, TheBicycleNutKids believes being active and having fun should be a part of everyday life. The program aims to get young people and their parents to take part in a bicycle community.

TheBicycleNutKids benefits youth all over the USA, and is opening new chapters – programs run by parents, teachers, coaches, cycling clubs, youth organizations, and law enforcement agencies making a difference in young people’s lives.

Inspiring Stories in Cycling

This is the bike program’s 10th year as they head into their annual ride, the Tour de SiiHasin.

SiiHasin means “hope” in Navajo, and the ride brings the community together as an act of cultural connection and healing. The program was started by only a handful of riders to address suicide prevention on the reservation and has evolved into a community-led act of strength, wellness and togetherness.

The family of riders continues to grow larger each year celebrating the simple fact that everyone should be able to experience the joy and freedom that only a bike can bring.

Brian Hall’s Ride with Parkinson’s

Brian Hall is many things—a published author, public speaker, loving partner, friend, community caretaker, and a devoted cyclist. 

Brian’s symptoms of Parkinson’s disease started at age 14. His high school basketball coach noticed his movement was being hampered by intermittent foot cramps, as he ran the length of the basketball court.

This was the beginning of a very long and frustrating medical journey. For years, the uncertainty of Brian’s condition left him with a great deal of fear and doubt about his physical future.

Then, in 2013 almost 20 years later he got a bicycle, and his entire world changed

The Texas 4000

“When you reach the top of a huge mountain or you finally end your day after a century in crazy headwinds, you feel a sense of accomplishment and you know that you didn’t only do that for yourself,” says Alyssa Schmidt (center, left photo above) from the Sierra route. “You did the whole long, crazy, hard ride for those that came before you and everyone you ride for. Feeling a part of something bigger than yourself, and knowing that it matters always, was so important for this ride.”
