Bikes Belong awarded its first grant to an off-road cycling project at IMBA's 2002 Mountain Bike Advocacy Summit in Moab, Utah. A $10,000 grant went to Jackson Hole Community Pathways for singletrack trails at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Bikes Belong is now known as PeopleForBikes and has continued to support the growth of cycling.
The PeopleForBikes Community Grant Program provides funding for important and influential projects that leverage federal funding and build momentum for bicycling in communities across the U.S. These projects include bike paths and rail trails, as well as mountain bike trails, bike parks, BMX facilities, and large-scale bicycle advocacy initiatives.
