Community Cycling Center
Our mission is to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.
We believe that equipping individuals with bicycles and pairing this with education is a recipe for empowerment. This is seen through bike giveaways, paid apprenticeship programs, shop discounts for low-income commuters, bike camps in historically underserved communities and so much more!
Bottom Line for Portland
Our vision: to help build a vibrant community where people of all backgrounds use bicycles to stay healthy and connected. We believe that all Portlanders—regardless of income or background—should have the opportunity to experience the joy, freedom, and health benefits of bicycling. This is the motivation behind everything that we do.
“The bike is a vehicle of transportation, but we are also trying to bond communities, regardless of your background of where you come from or your financial situation, that is what the Community Cycling Center is about.”--Natty Pillias, Community Cycling Center Safe Routes to School Coordinator
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We recognize that without internal diversity, we fall short of serving our diverse community. Every person, no matter their background or situation, deserves equal access to the utility, empowerment and joy a bicycle brings. We work alongside underserved communities to best understand their needs, and show up by bringing bike-centered programs to their neighborhoods to facilitate success along their chosen path.
