Your Bike, Your Ride

10 Bikes x 10 Districts = 100 New Youth Riders Exploring the World on Two Wheels

Your Bike, Your Ride provided 100 bikes to 100 youth participants in 10 San Antonio Council Districts in 2021

The San Antonio Transportation Department and Ghisallo Cycling Initiative envisioned a campaign which would reach all 10 Districts, provide youth with the opportunity for accessible mobility, and increase overall community bicycle safety knowledge and skills. Ghisallo Cycling Initiative was selected to receive the NRDC Action Fund one-time grant for the purchase of bicycles and equipment and to develop the strategy to implement this vision, to enable San Antonio advance its transportation, climate, and equity goals while piloting a program to produce long-term bike riders among San Antonio’s youth in-coordination with the San Antonio Bikes program. Community bicycle education and safety instruction was provided via our Texas Department of Transportation funded bicycle and pedestrian safety programs.
