MORE ABOUT THE GHISALLO CYCLING INITIATIVE
The Ghisallo Cycling Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2011 and based in Austin, Texas. Our goal is not only to provide Austin youth with supervised access to outdoor physical activity, but to help them develop into self-sufficient riders who have the skills and knowledge to use their bicycles for transportation without depending on adults. Our programs focus on transportation, navigation, and exploration while purposely developing opportunity, access, and equity.
Our primary clients are are low-income under-served students to whom we provide semester-long, after-school Bike Clubs, a free Youth Bike Shop and Earn-A-Bike program, Bicycle Rodeos, and maintenance and safety clinics. Since 2013 we have served over 5,500 youth participants via Bike Clubs and Earn-A-Bike programs and over 2,800 via Bike Rodeos. In the Fall of 2015 we expanded to 20 sites across Austin.
MORE ABOUT THE HELL YES! PROJECTS
The idea behind the Hell Yes Projects is to prove out The ABGB’s philosophy that beer has the power to make everything better. Sharing times with friends. A fresh, hot slice of pizza. Seeing a great band. Hell yes, beer makes all of these things better. But we also believe that beer has the power to make our entire community better. We believe we can harness beer’s innate goodness and put it into action improving our neighborhood and city and enriching the lives of lots of folks. So, Hell Yes to more bikes around our city. And Hell Yes to making kids happy at the holidays with the joy (and the responsibility) of a brand new bike.
