Roll it Forward!

Starting April 1, NYCC will accept applications for $500 awards to local organizations whose principal mission is cycling-related, or whose activities directly benefit cycling, or has a cycling-related project.  Applicants must be a not-for-profit, or operate under the auspices of a 501(c)(3) “umbrella.” 

Examples of groups NYCC has funded in the past include Bike Tarrytown, who advocate for bike infrastructure across the Mario M. Cuomo> Old Croton Aqueduct> N-S County Trailway corridor; and the Central Park Medical Unit which are the first responders for incidents on the Park Drive. 

If you know of a worthy group or project, here’s the online application.  Deadline to file is May 15, 2022.

This program was established by the Board following the success of Escape New York in 2021 in order to use the increased proceeds to further benefit the cycling community in areas through which we ride.

In addition, all charities are welcome to partner with us around our Escape New York ride in the fall and leverage it as an optional fundraiser. For further details, please email [email protected]
