Challenge

Just giving away bicycles to people who struggle to afford one is not enough to ensure their safe and effective use.

Solution

The moment when a client receives a bicycle affords a unique touch point to enroll them in the rules of the road for safe cycling and tips about riding in traffic with other vehicles.

Long-Term Impact

Our organization seeks to reach people in ways that encourage them to make cycling a part of their lifestyle and a primary transportation choice. The long term impacts include better health and fitness, greater mobility, reduced congestion and pollution.
