Bikes Belong Announces $30,000 in Grant Awards

08.17.2005
Boulder, Colorado

Bikes Belong will award $30,000 in grants this month to five important bicycling projects. Three facilities grants will help fund new bike paths, creating safer routes for cyclists. Grants will also support two education programs that teach young people how to ride their bikes confidently and safely. These diverse projects will effectively put more people on bicycles more often.

Swan Mountain RecPat -- Summit County, CO
A $10,000 grant will help the Northern Colorado Council of Governments build the Lowry Phase of the Swan Mountain RecPath -- the missing 1.5-mile link in a popular 45-mile network of trails in Summit County, Colorado. This path will "complete the street," giving cyclists a safe alternative to riding over dangerous Swan Mountain Road. More about NCCG here.

New Spanish Trail -- Moab, UT
The Moab Trails Alliance will receive $5,000 to help construct the New Spanish Trail/SR 128 Bike Path. This scenic path will appeal to new cyclists and families. It will also provide a safe alternative to the highway for mountain bikers on their way to and from Moab's well-loved singletrack. More about Moab Trails Alliance here.

Asbury Bicycle/Pedestrian Trail -- Asbury, IA
A $5,000 grant will help the City of Asbury develop its bike/ped trail project -- a top priority for the city. The path will provide a safe, non-motorized route through town, linking the new middle school, a retirement community, and an affordable housing complex with local businesses and retail shops.

YMCA City Bike Program -- San Francisco, CA
The Presidio Community YMCA will use our $5,000 grant to expand the reach of City Bike -- an after-school bicycle education, health, and safety program for middle-school students. The program teaches young people everything from how to ride a bicycle for the first time to bike maintenance, and students learn bike-handling skills and cycling safety during weekly rides through their neighborhoods. Many City Bike participants go on to join the YMCA's bicycle club.

Bicycle Driver's Ed -- Phoenix, AZ
The Phoenix Children's Hospital will receive a $5,000 grant to revise and improve its Bicycle Driver's Ed program. The program strives to reduce the number of childhood injuries due to bicycle accidents by teaching kids to "drive" their bikes with the same care they'd use to drive a car. The program, targeted at young people ages 12 to 17, has also received grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
