There are some great things being done in Central Texas to encourage health, safety, and community through bicycling!
We encourage you to check these organizations out!
The Austin Yellow Bike Project 501c(3) is a volunteer-powered initiative to put bicycles on the streets of Austin and Central Texas by operating community bike shops, teaching bike mechanics and maintenance, and acting as a local bike advocacy group. YBP is located at 1216 Webberville Road in Austin, Texas, and is an educational facility open to anyone who wants to learn about fixing and riding bikes. At YBP, we don’t fix your bike for you—we show you how to fix it yourself.
The Ghisallo Foundation is an Austin, TX based 501c3 non-profit working to enhance and expand the cycling community through project based initiatives. Our primary mission is to educate and develop youth riders into cycling experts who integrate bicycling into their daily lives. While we undertake a diverse set of projects, our core focus is youth bicycling skills and cycling education. In addition to the ongoing youth programs, we provide community related cycling services such as Bike Rodeos, bicycle parking facility design and installation, as well as cycling-related research projects. We participate in Bike Month, Bike-to-Work Day, various Keep Austin Beautiful projects, and founded Bike-to-Eat Week which is a direct incentive program from restaurants, bars, retail, and service businesses to cyclists to encourage transportation cycling.
Boneshaker Project works directly in the community to empower kids to feel physically strong from a young age. Through expert coach mentorship and online engagement, we encourage kids to ‘do what moves you,’ feel confident and enjoy healthy lifestyles.
