The Oregon Health Authority awarded a public health equity grant of $247,000 to Lane County nonprofit Shift Community Cycles.

The grant will support hiring a youth program manager and additional staff to develop and offer youth summer camps and year-round programming for youth and families in 2024 and 2025.

This significant funding award supports Shift’s primary goal: To remove barriers to bike ownership and cycling culture for underserved youth, families, and communities.

“We’re so excited to see that our programs and workshops are now fully funded,” explains Shift Director and Co-Founder Josh Goldfarb, “so we can fulfill our mission and provide youth-focused programs
for the kiddos and families.”

Shift Community Cycles is a local community bike shop dedicated to removing barriers and empowering more individuals and communities to join the world of bicycling. With our dedicated board, volunteers, and community partners, we offer free community bike stands, mobile repair pop-ups, repair education workshops and social events, all focused on bicycle access and education for low-income and underserved communities.

Shift’s current partners and affiliates include Safe Routes to School, BEST (Better Eugene Springfield Transportation), 360 Cycles, Cyclized, GEARs (Greater Eugene Area Riders), Eugene Transportation, Cascadia Mobility, and PeaceHealth Rides.
