The Fearless Flyers experience has completely changed my life. I lost a lot of weight, gained more confidence, built community and witnessed what it’s done for other youth. I will be with this program for a long time.
Being a member of the Fearless Flyers program helped me overcome my fears. The team builds a sense of spirit and community, and introduced me to relationships that will impact my life forever. The experience expanded my comfort zone and enabled me to go out in the world and try new things.
Being a ride lead and giving the next class of participants their graduation certificates created a strong bond and connection with the next generation of Fearless Flyers.
The first time I rode to the Little Red Lighthouse under the George Washington Bridge, I wondered how I had come so far — I felt imense gratitude that I made it to the bridge.
I’m excited about my second year with Fearless Flyers — riding this year was so much easier since I’ve become more fit. OutCycling feels like a family and I’m psyched to ride with a group of queer youth who are active.
Fearless Flyers taught me I can prevail through anything and it has showed me to never give up because everything just gets better. I learned how to become more of an outspoken leader; to be more outgoing and to always be fearless.
