Press release from Sycamore Cycles:
Sycamore Cycles was one of just eleven (11) bike shops throughout the United States to receive Quality Bicycle Products’ (QBP) 2019 Community Grant.
Sycamore Cycles is working closely with Henderson County Parks and Recreation, and plans to use the $8,000 to add shade structures and more bicycle skills lines to the Jackson Park Bicycle Park in Hendersonville. Shane Dunn, sales manager, says Sycamore is actively working on rebuilding the jump line and has more great improvements planned for the future.
“We are excited to use the Community Grant to bring in more positive improvements to the Jackson Park Bike Park, and make it a much nicer place to ride and spend quality time outdoors.” Says Dunn “This grant will jump-start our work at the Bike Park, which provides a great free activity for kids and families throughout the region.”
The QBP Community Grant supports local, bike shop-led initiatives related to increasing ridership among diverse and/or underserved populations, youth ridership, bicycle infrastructure or educational programs.
