Partner Spotlight: Community Cycling Center

July 15, 2020

“We love Portland and bikes. So, we put our two loves together, creating a non-profit organization on a mission to broaden access to bicycling and its benefits.


Our vision: to help build a vibrant community where people of all backgrounds use bicycles to stay healthy and connected. We believe that all Portlanders—regardless of income or background—should have the opportunity to experience the joy, freedom, and health benefits of bicycling. This is the motivation behind everything that we do.” 
- The Community Cycling Center

The Community Cycling Center started in the Alberta District of Portland with founder and mechanic Brian Lacy teaching local kids cycling basics, and have been working to bring empowerment to NE Portland through bicycle education ever since. 

They have a ton of programs (seriously, check it out) aimed at improving access to the joy and utility of cycling. They were also one of the first shops to sell North St. Bags, and we’re proud to be able to help support them as a 1% for the Planet giving partner now.

In addition to their regular programming, during the first few weeks of Oregon’s Covid-19 shut down the Community Cycling Center pivoted their resources to serve local residents’ needs. Members of the Community Cycling Center’s volunteer team started by delivering food boxes to 30 low-income and at-risk households. They now make these frontline deliveries to 145 homes in North and Northeast Portland.
