We are pleased to announce that we have combined with the Cadence Cycling Foundation. Together we are creating the largest bicycling nonprofit in Pennsylvania and our wider region, with the largest urban youth educational programs of any such organization in the country.
Make sure to read our blog for updates on the Cadence Foundation, its programs, and how this will strengthen our work on behalf of bicyclists in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
From the press release:
“We are bringing together two highly effective organizations whose missions center around the transformative powers of the bicycle for communities and individuals,” said Leslye Abrutyn, the board chair of the Bicycle Coalition. “The gathering of vision, leadership from the business community, and financial stability found in this combination will strengthen both organizations’ work and benefit bicycling across the entire region.”
The Cadence Cycling Foundation, founded in 2007, uses cycling as a tool to help underserved youth gain the skills and education needed to break the cycle of poverty. CCF cycling teams are organized out of schools and housing projects in Philadelphia and Camden.
