From Ghisallo Cycling Initiative , this month’s Get Involved spotlight organization:

Ghisallo Cycling Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2011 with programs in Austin and San Antonio. The name “Ghisallo” derives from the patron saint of cycling, Madonna del Ghisallo. We envision a community of comfortable and confident lifelong riders and our mission is to enable historically underserved populations to access their interests by bicycle.

Ghisallo has three programmatic divisions segmented by age group: Cycle Academy ( https://cycleacademy.org ) is focused on enabling youth to develop into self-sufficient and confident riders who have the skills and knowledge to use their bicycles for transportation without depending on adults. With a focus on exploration, navigation, and transportation, we create the opportunity for youth to explore and connect with their communities, to learn to navigate and access the city, and to use their bikes for transportation to the park, the pool, their friend’s house, and school.

City Cyclist ( https://citycyclist.org ) is focused on adults as well as the general public (families, all ages) and includes group rides, clinics, events, and community programs.

Golden Rollers ( https://goldenrollers.org ) is focused on older adults, seniors, and individuals with physical and cognitive impairments. Riders primarily use upright and recumbent tricycles to experience high quality physical activity, access to the outdoors, and to reduce isolation and loneliness.

Now Hiring: Ghisallo is looking for an enthusiastic Austin Team Lead to support our Austin staff, clients, programs, and projects. Anticipated start date during May 2022. […]
