Bikes Belong awards spring grants supporting recreation

Bikes Belong announced six recreation-focused grants to grassroots groups across the US including volunteer-driven projects supporting a riverfront path, a freeride trail, a BMX freestyle park, and backcountry singletrack.

US$10,000 grants were awarded to the Willimantic Whitewater Partnership for the Hop River/Airline Extension Bike Path in Willlimantic, Connecticut, and the California Off-Road Bicyclists Association for the Mount Hillyer Freeride Trail in Los Angeles County, California.

The Vermont Mountain Bike Association received $9,2000 for their Green Mountain National Forest Access Program to extend three sections of singletrack in the Green Mountain National Forest's Moosalamoo National Recreation Area - previously off-limits to mountain bikes.

$5,000 grant recipients include the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship for their completion of the final four miles of the North Yuba Trail Extension in Downieville, California; the Friends of Pathways for the Order of the Arrow Trail Construction Project in Jackson, Wyoming; and the Village of Mexico, New York for its Freedom Skate/BMX Park completion project.
