WE PROMOTE EDUCATION, ACCESS AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT INCREASE DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION IN CYCLING.
We invest in areas that create sustainable paths for cycling as a lifelong passion. Our four pillars feed into each other creating solutions that provide entry points at each step of a cyclist’s journey.
Our first initiative at Grow Cycling Foundation is building a Velosolutions Pumptrack in Los Angeles, California.
We have been working closely with Velosolutions to make sure that the pumptrack can not only support that capacity of such a location, but that it is a world class course ready to host amazing events for years to come.
We are building a 30,000 square foot pumptrack and the estimated cost per square foot is $40. This means that we need $1.2 Million to acheive our vison of bringing a cycling ecosystem to an area that has never had this opportunity.
