- Mountain bike facilities
- Bike parks and pump tracks
- BMX facilities
- End-of-trip facilities such as bike racks, bike parking, and bike storage
We also fund some advocacy projects, such as:
- Programs that transform city streets, such as Ciclovías or Open Streets Days
- Initiatives designed to increase ridership or the investment in bicycle infrastructure
PeopleForBikes will fund engineering and design work, construction costs including materials, labor, and equipment rental, and reasonable volunteer support costs. For advocacy projects, we will fund staffing that is directly related to accomplishing the goals of the initiative."
