Outride Fund Round 7 Announcement

Outride announced new grants to 43 nonprofit organizations and schools across the United States today. With its seventh round of grantmaking through the Outride Fund, Outride has grown its total investment in youth cycling to $2.4M across 255 community cycling projects in over 40 states, including 20 new partners in this round. Of note is a continued investment in programs supporting adaptive cyclists, girls and women, youth in rural settings, and BIPOC youth from low-income communities.

Outride Fund grants are unrestricted, supporting everything from staffing and operational costs to direct program fees, scholarships, and equipment. The grant operates on an annual cycle with the only reporting requirement being an impact survey.

“The Outride Fund meets a unique demand in the cycling philanthropic space by providing unrestricted grants to a broad range of youth cycling initiatives. The impact we’re seeking is an acceleration of a wide variety of pathways for more youth, especially those from low-income backgrounds and under-resourced communities, to get on bikes and experience the life-changing benefits of cycling. That’s why we’re investing in projects ranging from earn-a-bike programs to adaptive cycling clinics all across the country.”

Chazz Robinson, Program Manager for Outride
