Beginning with the Understanding Barriers to Bicycling Report in 2009, the Community Cycling Center collaborated with community leaders in New Columbia to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.
In 2012, the Bike Repair Hub opened, turning what was once a vacant lot into a community resource for affordable bike repair, bike safety education, and a meeting spot for summertime bike rides. This year, the new Bike Skills Park is underway. Come learn from the CCC's Interim Executive Director Anne Lee about the latest project and plans for the future.
