Valdosta Bike Co-op Awarded Georgia Bikes Seed Grant

Last week we received word that The Valdosta Bike Co-op has been chosen for one of the Georgia Bikes seed grants. Each year the organization awards ten grants of $1500 to bike groups working to build cycling infrastructure and culture in their community.

We are extremely excited to be receiving this grant as it will help us jump start a number of projects including stocking a solid base of bike parts, beginning our bike maintenance workshops, getting some bike safety literature printed, and a handful of other projects.

We received word of the grant on the heels of our successful tool fundraising campaign, so we are starting off our second month with a lot already happening. Most of our tools should be in the shop by this coming Wednesday (the 9th), so be sure to come check us out sometime this week!
