Hooray! BiCi Co. was just approved for a crowdfunding campaign with 100% matching funds from the Sustainable CT Community Match Fund. This is an awesome opportunity to double your contribution/impact on the future of BiCi Co, and to become a member at the same time!
The funds raised will go toward the core initiatives at the Hartford 97 Park Street location including Do-It-Yourself hours, Earn-a-Bike, Bikes for Jobs and a ‘Light the Night’ safety initiative. The budget includes sponsoring 20 youth and teen memberships for Earn-a-Bike course graduates.
Funds will also support outfitting the new Elmwood West Hartford BiCi Co. location near the CTfastrak station on New Park Ave with tools and gear opening in Spring 2020. We want to extend as many of our programs as possible to the new digs.
Finally, this is also our annual membership campaign. BiCi Co. members get access to the Do-It-Yourself hours to fix their own bikes, work on other projects, and learn bicycle mechanic skills.
