Welcome to ecocycling!

bikefoodEco 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.

OUR STORY
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.

Urban/Rooftop gardens

Our projects range from small porch and backyard plots to expansive urban and rooftop gardens. Ecocycling has a dedicated team of designers, landscapers and volunteers who work together in order to develop lush and beautiful green spaces. We have learned that by providing a natural, green and sustainable environment for future generations communities can be unified and strengthened.
Our team makes sure to include important features such as rainwater collection, renewable energy sources, recycled materials and much more into our designs. We are able to provide environmentally friendly spaces while allowing for the best possible use of all resources. If you would like to join the effort, get more information or would like to utilize our services please contact us at volunteer@ecocycling.com.

We are collecting PET (plastic) bottles for Solar water disinfection. These bottles will be delivered to Haiti to help stop their chorlea outbreaks along with many other creative uses. Please recycle your used plastics bottles to us. By sending us an email with your contact information and message at info@ecocycling.org we will provide you with a local drop off location.
