WalkBike Frankfort and The Folkbike ReCyclery received formal notification this week from the Kentucky Bicycle and Bikeway Commission approving our Paula Nye Grant application to fund our mobile bicycle education programs! The $18,000 grant will provide our community with professional instructor training for our staff by the League of American Bicyclists, an enclosed cargo trailer housing a mobile bike shop, a fleet of bicycles, and everything we need to provide professional bicycle safety training for both adults and children. Starting this spring, we will be providing the following accredited courses to benefit our community.
In addition to the training courses, this grant will also pay for six public service announcements, upgrade the shop's work stations, and expand our public use tool library for folks to learn how to repair and maintain their bicycles.
All this is made possible by a Grant from the Kentucky Bicycle and Bikeway Commission with funds generated by the purchase of "Share the Road" license plates by Kentucky motorists. THANK YOU KBBC !!!
