Cycles for Change: Impacts and Opportunities - Results from A Discussion of Cycles for Change's Work in the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area

In 2013, Cycles for Change received funding from the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota to implement policy, systems, and environmental changes to improve the health of residents in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Cycles for Change has worked to increase leadership opportunities within its Community Partners Bike Library, a bike lending program aimed at increasing access to bikes and bike-related education for underserved communities. Cycles for Change has also built a network of individual and organizational leaders from underrepresented communities to influence policy and shape the built environment related to biking. In October 2014, a group of 18 project stakeholders were invited to a Ripple Effect Mapping discussion about the project's impact in the community.
