Increasing our Community’s Mobility
What is BiCi Co.?
The Center for Latino Progress, through its BiCi Co. program, improves youth and adult safety, while also increasing our community’s mobility and access to jobs. “Bici” is the Spanish nickname for bicicleta (bicycle) and Co. represents our comunidad (community). Located at 95-97 Park Street at the south edge of downtown, BiCi Co. is a both a storefront and welcoming space for both enthusiasts and the bicycle curious. BiCi Co.’s successful summer pilot program in 2015 had 30 teens learning bike safety, mechanics, bicycle science, and history. Now BiCi Co. has expanded to include year-round programs and services for adults and youth – including a fully functioning bike shop.
It all began with a vision.
