Go By Bike Program Receives Tool Donation from QBP
Quality Bicycle Products (QBP), the nation's largest bicycle and parts distributor has donated $1,500 worth of tools to the Bicycle Alliance of Washington's Go By Bike program. The Go By Bike (GBB) program teaches safe bicycling to students at four colleges and parents of students at two elementary schools and is primarily funded by a grant from the Washinton State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). Due to limitations of the WSDOT grant, tools could not be acquired using those grant funds. To work around this limitation, GBB program manager, Joshua Miller applied for and received a generous tool donation from QBP's Advocacy program within the Advocacy, Community and Education (ACE) division. The Go By Bike program extends a hearty thank you to QBP ACE employees Chuck Sween and Seth Nesselhuf for their excellent and prompt assistance and support.
