The aim of Pedal Up Mountain Biking Program is to see Carlo Schejola’s passion for cycling remembered and celebrated. Program funds are used to help bring daily access to cycling, by partnering with youth serving nonprofits to establishing local mountain bike programs and facilities, for children and teens across the country.
Currently Mountain Biking Program is being actively completed each year at five Boys & Girls Club facilities across the south eastern states. While initial areas for the growth of the program are focused on the current region, long term goals are to expand nationally and internationally to help provide daily access to cycling for children and teens across the world.
Carlo Schejola grew up in Milan, Italy. He met his wife Linda while she was on a holiday there. Carlo was an avid cyclist and soccer fan. When he passed, over a decade ago, family and friends contributed to the Foundation in memory and celebration of his life. Today, Carlo’s wife Linda oversees the Foundation with the help of her children and staff.

"I really like the bike program. First, we get to ride a lot. Second, the bikes are well maintained by Mr. Scott. Third, riding the bikes every opportunity helps me exercise."
"I absolutely love the bike program. We get to ride on the track a lot. We even took field trips to our tracks. Mr. Scott is a great bike staff. He also teaches us how to ride better and how to do tricks. This is a great program."
"This bike program is amazing. Being on the bike and riding the track gives me the opportunity to have fun and also all my worries go away. I am so glad that the Boys and Girls Club has this program."
