White Oak Bicycle Cooperative in Red Bank recently received national recognition when the Trust for Public Land announced that White Oak was one of eight organizations across the nation selected to receive a grant from the trust’s Equitable Communities Fund.
The $10,000 grant will allow White Oak Bicycle, a volunteer-run nonprofit, to purchase equipment and bolster its ability to make bicycling available to everyone.
The Trust for Public Land became aware of White Oak Bicycle through its work on a one-mile trail connector between Stringer’s Ridge Park in North Chattanooga and White Oak Park in Red Bank.
The grant will help the organization purchase a trailer for transporting equipment to events, a tent, work table and tool set, and parts like tubes, chains and tires.
White Oak Bicycle provides bicycles to children, low-income households and the homelessness. To date, the organization has donated 63 bicycles.
