Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation Grants Improving Cycling in Our Communities.

Kickstand Bicycle Cooperative in Knoxville used a JRCF grant to help purchase two of these heavy duty outdoor tire pumps. The tire pumps are being placed next to repair stands previously installed around the city.

Some cycling improvement uses of past grants.

Smokey Mountain Wellness used a JRCF grant to purchase the equipment to lay out bike rodeo safety courses.

Community Bike Challenge Grant Program for 2019 is Now Open

The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation is awarding 6 grants, up to $1000 each, statewide in conjunction with its 2019 Community Bike Club Challenge Program. Local bicycle clubs, community bicycle programs, and other not for profit and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to submit proposals for projects that promote bicycling as a safe and healthy form of recreation and transportation.

Projects with potential for achieving community wide impact like encouragement of new cyclists of all age groups, safe cycling programs, promotion of cycling as family recreation, facilitating bicycle maintenance in underserved populations, education of law enforcement and judicial agencies on current bicycle-pedestrian legislation, etc. will receive greatest consideration for funding. The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation only funds projects, programs, and organizations in the State of Tennessee. All grant requests must support a specific project or program. The Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation does not grant funds for organizational operating expenses like salary and overhead.
