What's new in the Valley?

We regularly offer mini-grants to partners in the Connecticut River Valley doing work related to improving bicycling safety and access. For information on the grants, please email us at bikeinfo@massbike.org

MassBike CRV is committed to encouraging bicycling for fun, fitness, and transportation for all Connecticut River Valley residents. The organization is especially interested in supporting projects which benefit low-income communities and/or underrepresented demographics in bicycling (e.g. women) though all are encouraged to apply.
