Directly investing in the best bike projects

2018 Community Grant recipients included pump tracks, bike parks and protected bike lanes.

PeopleForBikes Community Grants program funds infrastructure projects and a small number of advocacy campaigns focused on increasing the local investment in infrastructure. These grants are funded through support from Cannondale, Fuji, Giant, Shimano, Trek and individuals who work in the bike industry.

We consistently receive hundreds of applications for each grant cycle; this year we awarded 10 grants in the spring cycle and eight in the fall.
