Lancaster Bicycle Club Grant Program

 

The 2019 application period is now closed.  We awarded $24,472 in grants for this year.  Come back soon to see a posting of the exciting projects that we are supporting this year.  Contact John Mullineaux to be added to next year's email communication.

The Lancaster Bicycle Club’s grant program provides funds to organizations that help to further the mission of the Club. Since 1999, the Lancaster Bicycle Club has awarded over $300,000 in grants. Grants are typically awarded annually. Grants are made at the sole discretion of the Lancaster Bicycle Club. Grant funds primarily come from the net profits of the Club’s annual Lancaster Covered Bridge Classic ride. In awarding grants, the Club is guided by the following principles:
  • Grants may be made to governmental and other organizations for facilities that directly improve the bicycling experience in Lancaster County. These shall include but not be limited to: bicycle racks, bicycle lane markings, signs promoting bicycle rights/safety on roadways.
  • Grants may be made to governmental and other organizations for repair and maintenance of facilities that are part of the bicycling experience in Lancaster County, such as covered bridges.
  • Grants may be made to governmental and other organizations that provide advocacy for bicyclists’ rights and safety.
  • Grants may be made to governmental and other organizations that promote awareness of the Lancaster Bicycle Club and its mission in Lancaster County.
  • Grants may be made to governmental and other organizations that promote bicycling in Lancaster County.
  • Grants may be made to institutions that provide a venue for Club activities.

Adopt a Highway

The Adopt-a-Highway program was started back in 1992 by Harry Campbell [deceased] as a way for our club to give back to Lancaster County. We are expected to clean up Columbia Ave. from Donnerville Rd. to Rohrerstown Rd. 3 times a year. PA DOT supplies us with gloves, reflective vests & trash bags.
