Working Bikes successfully applied for a grant from the Evanston Bicycle Club (EBC). As stated in our grant application to EBC, Working Bikes will use these funds to help enhance our local donation program to get bikes in the hands of children, refugees, veterans, the homeless and others who need bikes in the Chicago area for healthy transportation.

Funds from the North Shore Century enable the EBC to provide grants and donations to not-for-profit organizations for biking-related programs and activities. Roughly 80% of the net proceeds of the 2017 North Shore Century will benefit similar organizations and programs.

We are very grateful for EBC’s support and strongly encourage cyclists to register for the 33rd Annual North Shore Century held on Sunday September 17, 2017 on their website.
