Do You remember that feeling the first time you rode a bike? The Thrill of climbing up on two pedals and doing something all on your own. That overwhelming sense that suddenly anything was possible. Some Might think that children have it easy. But so many childhoods are far from carefree. ADHD. Obesity. Anxiety. Isolation. These are problems you can't run from But you can outride them. We are harnessing the power of cycling to help children stay focused, active and engaged. To ride with friends, not scroll past them. To feel wind on their faces and fresh air in their lungs. Give a kid two wheels and you give them the world. Lets see how far their legs can take them. Outride...



OUTRIDE has set out to prove cycling benefits your brain! Through our research, cycling programs, and grant giving activities, we provide evidence based cycling interventions to improve social, emotional, and cognitive health.


Specialized Founder and CEO, Mike Sinyard, has long dealt with the effects of ADHD in his own life. The inability to stay focused and being easily distracted were something he had grown to just accept as “normal.” Yet, he noticed that those symptoms seemed to dissipate after returning from a ride. Mike also saw the positive benefits that riding has had on his son, Anthony, who also suffered from ADHD. So when the Bicycling Magazine article “Riding Is my Ritalin” came across his desk, he decided that it was time to explore whether or not there really was science behind riding’s impact on the brain.

We’re committed to doing the right thing, and where we see a chance to help, we’re going to do it. We make bikes, and bikes help kids. But we can’t do it alone. We need people like you to get involved and join the movement, and together, we’ll make a difference for generations to come. Let’s outride ADHD.

I’d rather ride my bike than play video games…It helped me get better grades since I’ve been concentrating more…It feels good.
