Imagine a world where families can walk or bike an urban trail to a safe, well-maintained public park where they can play and exercise on outdoor fitness equipment. Where our elders can board a bus for the short ride to the city center where they can access many of the necessary amenities. Cities’ planning, zoning, and infrastructure investment can not only have a positive effect on health but can also foster community and keep some of our most vulnerable populations engaged, active and healthy from ages 8 to 80. What will they do about it?
Access to healthy food is an important tool in obesity prevention. By providing citizens with healthy. affordable, easily accessable alternatives to foods with high caloric content and little nutritional value cities can lead by example in the fight against obesity. Cities have powerful planning, economic development, and public relations tools for attracting and supporting healthy food retailers, farmer’s markets and community gardens. Are they ready to take action?

Eco cycling was created in 2007 to increase awareness about current environmental issues through grassroots activities such as our educational forums, Ecocycling team, beautification projects, recycling-trash clean up programs and more! Our teams are often out working to create a lifestyle that encompass the core values of naturalists and environmentalists while cultivating non- bureaucratic procedures to accomplish our goals. We encourage you to delve deep, learn about our organization and hopefully become involved with our programs by being a regular volunteer.
The organization was created in 2007 to increase awareness about current environmental issues through grassroots activities such as the Ecocycling team which helps to grow and spread awareness regarding the environmental issues facing us as individuals, families, and communities. Our riders always keep an ear to the street and make sure our voices are heard by maintaining a direct involvement in the community. Since we’re often not in a hurry but would rather develop relationships with those we meet, we have been nicknamed the “Turtles of Racing” because to us it is not how fast you get to the finish but what you have accomplished along the way!
Our educational forums and conferences help to bring groups together in order to move towards a more sustainable future through the sharing of information, resources, and abilities. Our involvement in “greening” the landscape is taken to the next level with numerous beautification programs. From simply planting a single tree to creating urban and rooftop gardens we help to transition developed and often cold looking cityscapes to a blanket of lush and living greenery. When we are not planting for the future you may find us cleaning up the trash and waste left behind by others though our recycling and pedal up to clean-up programs.
At Ecocycling we not only offer hands on volunteering projects but we also have important sustainable programs to keep you actively engaged and involved in the process. Ecocycling provides people with the tools and knowledge to make a difference in our environment.
