The Community Cycling Center is revitalizing a vacant lot in the mixed-income New Columbia community in North Portland to promote bicycling skills and physical activity for children and youth. The Center will work closely with We All Can Ride, a group of local residents and community champions in the planning, maintenance, and management of this innovative project. Our organization's grant of $10,000 will add to support from partners Home Forward, ODS, and the Bike Gallery to build an age-appropriate skills course and pump track and develop a bike skills learning and repair center.
