Get Out And Gravel: Landerites Make Biking More Accessible

  • Local Champion: Lander Cycling Club
  • Date Funded: May 15, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $6,000

Many Landerites interested in biking are left out of the local biking scene due to safety concerns, technical skill deficits, and a lack of knowledge about available routes. Recently, gravel biking has grown in popularity do to Lander’s bevy of dirt roads and mellow terrain, but the Lander Cycling Club has seen an opportunity to provide even more opportunities to build knowledge and participation, particularly among groups of women and the LGBTQ community. As part of the solution, the Lander Cycling Club hoped to offer group rides with free bikes and skills training for people who don’t have an extensive background in gravel biking. Funding from the LOR Foundation will help the organization advertise those group rides and clinics, as well as support riders who want to enter Lander’s WYO131 Gravel Grinder race in September.
