Bikes Belong awards grants

In its latest round, Bikes Belong awarded five grants worth US$40,000 to communities in Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina. The grant awards will help construct paths and parks that will encourage active commuting and recreational riding.

Greenville County Recreation District in South Carolina received $10,000 to develop the 10-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail, a multi-use path to create a safe and accessible route for cyclists between downtown Greenville and a trail system in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Funding will complement the Recreational Trails Program funds, a grant from Newman's Own, and individual donations as well as support from Hincapie Sports.
