The Specifics

In honor of National Bike Month and the CLIF Bar 2 Mile Challenge, we’re asking individuals and nonprofits to generate and share ideas to promote bicycling in the community. We know that biking is good for our health, the environment, and the community, so tell us how you’d use $1,000 to get your neighbors on bikes!

We’re looking for fun community event ideas— anything from a bike wash to a bike parade to a pop-up bike repair day. Share your best idea with us here and we’ll let your fellow GOOD readers choose the most “whim-cycle” and inspiring submission to win the $1,000. Note that projects must be implemented within three months of receiving the grant.

Submit a proposal from May 14 to June 11 (noon Pacific Time). From June 11 to June 25, we’ll open it up to public voting. Rally your colleagues and friends to get behind your effort and join the GOOD community in selecting the winner.

Connect with this challenge on Twitter at @GOODmkr and join the conversation via #GOODbikes.

  • Write at least 3-5 sentences that explain how the $1,000 award will enable you to implement your idea.

a good use of bikes are the dutch bakfeits which can carry the children to school
i wouldget the mums fit and the 4x4s of the road and stop clogging up the roads adjacent to schools world wide urnam arrow has the ultimate bakfiets and it covert to regular bike and as a cargo bike as well
i would use the grant prize money to go towards the purchase of one of thesre amzing bikes
they are battery powered for the fainthearted like me or push power if your FIT or live in a flat road area
doing up to 25 miles on battery these are in my opinion the way forward . no immesions silent motor great fun for kids and less space at the gate waitin on the children coming out
kind regrds to all if you vote for my idea

I know my local Farmer's Market has a very popular free bike valet run by the City to provide extra bike parking and security to encourage people to ride their bikes. I would love to see others try something similar at local events in other neighborhoods.
