Ajo, AZ
Targeted location(s): Ajo in southern Pima County

The Bike Ajo coalition is working to improve access to opportunities for physical activity by creating a sustainable cycling hub that provides education on bicycle safety for recreation and transportation; trains local community members on bicycle repair, provides resources for bicycle repair and maintenance, certifies community members as League-Certified Cycling Instructors, and builds health-based partnerships with local Ajo organizations. Through building this capacity in the local community in a sustainable way, Ajo will be able to leverage this capacity to create economic growth through cycling, and we will create a replicable model for other rural communities interested in embracing cycling for transportation, recreation, and as an economic driver.
