Taiwan Bike Industry Makes 3 Year Commitment to Bikes Belong

Bikes Belong Coalition logoJust a quick post today resulting from some the good news I just received from Bikes Belong concerning Taiwan’s bicycle Industry announcing today that they have made a three year financial commitment to support BBC’s efforts to grow cycling in the US. Good for society and good for business.

The Taiwan Bicycle Exporters Association (TBEA) has committed $50,000 per year for three years to the Bikes Belong Foundation. The investment will go toward Bikes Belong’s Bicycling Design Best Practices Project, which works to increase bicycle use in America by adapting and implementing state-of-the art international best practices in infrastructure and urban design to make bicycling safer, more comfortable and more appealing. The SRAM Cycling Fund has matched this $50,000 contribution for 2010.

  1. way to go. i was in Taiwan last year, it was great great great for cycling. the dedicated bike lanes close to the rivers that run the length of Taipei. start at the far mountains end of Taipei, then ride without cars next to you for the full length of the city, until you can touch the sea. and the “off the beaten track rides”, high up in the mountains and hills , with those great narrow and seldom used roads where the beautiful Buddhist temples sit surrounding Taipei.. it was incredible. I will never forget Taiwan.
    thank you.
