The Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling program is expanding, as planned, this year, opening a new education headquarters on Lemon Hill and adding an additional site for the season, Roxborough High. What wasn’t planned, though, was the announcement that one of the program’s founding sponsors, ASE, was starting to restructure due to financial concerns.
Enter the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia.
The club and their leadership has decided to pass the hat and have come up with a $2,500 silver sponsorship, and will appear on the BCYC jersey this year. [Edit: As of 2/4/19, BCP has raised $5,043 for BCYC, which means they are a gold sponsor.]
They’ve even mounted a campaign for additional donations through their webpage.
BCGP and BCP have more in common than a similar acronym – we have a long history together of improving cycling opportunities. We salute the club and its members for investing in our youth program this year, ensuring a successful season and providing resources to fill a gap in gear.
If your cycling club would like to challenge its membership to provide resources for our cyclists, please read more about the program here or contact Alan Spooner (email@example.com). But you’ll want to act fast to be recognized on this year’s jersey — our deadline for kit design is February 1st.
Thanks again to the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia for your vital support this year!
