Anchorage GRIT is Back in 2022!
We are excited to support the Anchorage GRIT (Girls Riding Into Tomorrow) project again in 2022! To do this, Bike Anchorage is providing instruction on safe riding, insurance, and managing the Anchorage GRIT program finances. Your contributions here make that possible!
Anchorage GRIT (Girls Riding Into Tomorrow) is a middle school bicycle mentorship program for 7th-grade girls in Anchorage. GRIT aims to empower young women to safely and confidently ride bicycles in Anchorage and prepares them for a self-supported overnight bike adventure. The program features both vertical and horizontal support networks via a mentorship and bike-buddy pairing. The capstone project is a three-day ride on bike paths and gravel roads from Anchorage to the Serenity Falls Cabin at the end of Eklutna Lake.
We are seeking additional financial support for Anchorage GRIT this season to cover expenses including cabin rental, racks, locks, water bottle cages, food, and mentor stipends. Making a donation through this page will go directly to supporting Anchorage GRIT. Thank you!
