Through our People and the Planet Fund, we dedicate a portion of profits to supporting the cycling community, the community at large, and our environment.  We do all of this with a smile, because we know we are Enriching Community.

The Hub's Grant Program

We make space in our People and the Planet Fund for special projects that we really believe in.  By donating a higher dollar amount to these projects, we are attaching our valued community reputation to the organization and their cause.  Because of this, programs seeking a grant must be highly organized with a clear vision of what they are trying to accomplish.  Examples of past grants are:  Cycles for Change, Project Homeless Connect, Major Taylor Bicycling Club of Minnesota, Tour De Cure.
