BikeAthens Awarded GOHS Grant


(Athens) The BikeAthens Board of Directors are pleased to announce that they have received a grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in the amount of $45,811.

“We are very thankful to receive this grant from GOHS to better serve the Athens Community,” Tyler Dewey, Executive Director of BikeAthens says. “BikeAthens has a lot in store for the new year.”

In the new year, BikeAthens will provide proper helmet use education to over 100 low-income children and adults. Local families are identified with the help of social service agencies.

Because BikeAthens wants to help the community as much as possible, they will be offering ten adult bike education and eight programs for children, all classes will be open to the public.

“We like to think we provide ‘Human Powered, Human Empowerment,” Dewey says. “We are an organization almost completely run by volunteers who want to help the less fortunate in our community, and that speaks to the people that volunteer and donate to Bike Athens; they give what they can to help others.”
