Ride for Reading is a Nashville-based non-profit organization that strives to put books into the hands of children utilizing a unique method. We do this by delivering donated books via bicycle to economically-disadvantaged (Title 1) schools. We believe our mission facilitates a decline in the number of low-income families without books in their homes. Our core values keep us focused on our simple grassroots mission of promoting literacy and healthy living.

To Serve
It is the responsibility of the community to identify and strengthen the greatest need for literacy in underserved areas. Ultimately, we all serve to build confidence in children’s lives so that they may pursue their goals.

To Learn
We believe that giving children the chance to choose their own books gives them more opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills.

Be Healthy
Promote a healthy and positive lifestyle for children and volunteers to remain active and safe throughout their everyday lives.
