1,000 Bikes Distributed

Posted by on Jun 19, 2012 in Successes and Victories

Through our Bicycle Resource Center program, we distribute roughly 200 bikes a year and help thousands of people learn the skills to fix their own. 

In the summer of 2012, we celebrated reaching the milestone of having distributed 1,000 bikes through the program to people who would otherwise not have been able to afford one.  Based on our extremely conservative assumption that 20% are being used as main sources of transportation, we estimate that this program has saved over $1 million in fuel costs, conserved nearly 380,000 gallons of gasoline and prevented over 18 tons of CO2 emissions.
