Dear friends of Green Bay Bicycle Collective,
We are starting the new year off strong with an exciting announcement: the Collective has been chosen as a participating non-profit in Give BIG Green Bay 2022! Give BIG Green Bay is a yearly online giving event. It offers local nonprofits the ability to connect and community members a chance to learn about and support nonprofits like us.
Give BIG Green Bay is an initiative made possible through the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation and the Green Bay Packers. Their platforms and funding provide a powerful boost for local charities at work in our community. The Green Bay Packers Foundation has generously provided a $250,000 grant that will match funds to a certain amount for participating nonprofits in Give BIG Green Bay. To learn more, visit Give BIG Green Bay’s website and get ready to give BIG!
We are very excited to be a part of Give BIG! It is a great opportunity for us to share our mission and help make cycling possible for all of Green Bay. The Collective started in over ten years ago in 2011. Since then, we have been able to advocate for improved biking infrastructure, host bike safety courses, foster bike safety on community rides, open a community bike shop, and so much more. Give BIG Green Bay is an opportunity for us to bring our vision of creating a more bicycle-friendly Green Bay to life.
All Give BIG Green Bay donations will go towards our 2022 goals: purchasing or leasing a building to expand our community bike shop, growing our Earn-a-Bike program, and providing free bike safety clinics. To donate, make sure to check out Green Bay Bicycle’s profile on the Give BIG website. will be live on February 23-24. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and more information.
See you February 23-24!!
But the good news doesn’t stop there…
We’re also happy to announce the launch of a new program coming this bike season. In partnership with Wisconsin Bike Fed, GBBC will be offering mobile bike repair using a super-cool electric-assist cargo bike.
The bike will include a toolbox of essentials needed for basic bike repair and will be deployed in Green Bay parks on a rotating schedule to fix flat tires, broken chains, or other problems that may arise on a ride.
Best of all, we’ll be able to use the mobile bike repair unit to teach area youth basic bike maintenance. Thank you to Wisconsin Bike Fed for making this program possible!
We look forward to offering another program that creates safer and friendlier environments for all who love cycling in Green Bay. Stay tuned for more details and the launch date!
