Our Mission

The mission of the Foundation is to support inner city youth in under-served communities through inspirational speaking engagements and cycling outreach programs. These are designed to motivate and empower kids toward higher achievement in education, music and sports.

Who We Are

“Bahati Cycle” is a Cycling Outreach program designed to inspire and empower through the sport of cycling. GIVEBack programs are coordinated with Bahati Foundation corporate partners to supply inner-city youth with health and fitness gear, educational supplies and musical instruments.

The Power To Do Good

Through our partnership with World Bicycle Relief, we at Higher Gear understand the power of bicycles. The difference one bicycle can make in one life is unimaginable to some of us.

Rahsaan Bahati experienced that difference personally, when a bicycle radically changed the direction of his life.
