Chico Velo is a 501.c.3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote bicycling as a safe and sustainable mode of transportation and a healthy recreational activity. Chico Velo focuses on education and advocacy for safe bike and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure and produces bicycling events that draw people to our community. Proceeds from Chico Velo’s events, along with support from its members, donors, and sponsors, help fund their advocacy efforts. Through the creation of their TrailWorks program, Chico Velo helps with the maintenance of sustainable trails throughout Northern California. Other programs like KidsPedal, Safe Routes to School, and Bike Valet have contributed to the City of Chico’s recognition as a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.
