Grants Awarded

More kids on bikes with projects like the BMX track rebuild in Chico, CA

 

Since 1999, we have awarded more than 435 grants to bicycling projects and programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In Spring 2020, we supported eight great projects from California to New Hampshire:

Bike Durham Low Stress Network Advocacy Campaign (Durham, NC): This comprehensive advocacy campaign will help Bike Durham develop a complete multimodal network. Their ambitious goal:  A City commitment to and fund and implement 125 miles of slow streets, protected lanes and greenway infrastructure by 2025.

Creation of a Beginner Trail at Cacapon State Park (Berkeley Springs, WV): This PeopleForBikes grant will help the Cacapon Resort State Park foundation build a 2.6 mile beginner-level mountain bike trail to complement their existing advanced trails. This addition will create a trail loop that qualifies for NICA mountain bike team races, supporting their local team, residents and visitors near and far.

Baltimore Play Streets Advocacy Program (Baltimore, MD): Bikemore will use this funding to develop a Play Streets pilot to plan and resource these community events to serve as outreach and engagement tools for planned infrastructure improvements.

RVT Mile 19 Gap (New Bethlehem, PA): A devastating flash flood in July 2019 created a 40-foot chasm in the 51 mile Redbank Valley Trail, rendering it impassable along a popular stretch. PeopleForBikes’ grant will help the Redbank Valley Trails Association build a bridge to reconnect these sections and revive this popular destination for residents and visitors.

Silver Dollar BMX Relocation and Track Rebuild (Chico, CA): PeopleForBikes’ grant will help fund this track relocation project. The new facility will  include two world class BMX tracks, allowing the organization to expand and serve more riders in Northern California.

Connecting Trails to Downtown (Gorham, NH): Coos Cycling Club will use this funding to connect the existing mountain bike trail network to the downtown area with three related projects: improvements to the main “Pipeline” trail, addition of an easy climbing trail, and construction of a loop trail with skills features.

Wilmington Fix-It Stations (Wilmington, DE): The Urban Bike Project will use this funding to purchase and install a bike fixit station as a match to two stations the City of Wilmington will purchase and install. The stations will be placed in key locations that do not have access to other bike repair options.

Depot District Bike Racks (Muskogee, OK): Neighbors Building Neighborhoods of Muskogee will use this grant to install bike racks in the newly renovated Depot District public space. The bike parking will serve people riding to downtown attractions including the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and Muskogee Little Theater.
