Off-Road Accessible Mountain Bike Program for Bike Town USA

Funder: Craig H Neilsen Foundation

Funding period
USD 48 K
Funding amount
Abstract
STARS is proud to present a grant request of $48,000 to the Craig H. Neilson Foundation for our Off-Road Accessible Mountain Bike Program for Bike Town USA. The program is directly in-line with our mission to empower and enrich lives through adaptive recreational sports.

Funding from Neilson will enable STARS to develop a leading-edge off-road adaptive cycling program that will increase accessibility to the outdoors in Steamboat primarily for individuals with SCI. Funding will purchase five off road bikes, certify two staff members, develop an accessible Steamboat trail guide, and provide client scholarships. We anticipate the impact of this program will increase levels of physical fitness, independence, and access to the great outdoors for individuals living with SCI.

Some specific expected outcomes are: Over 80% of participants will experience access to the outdoors previously unavailable; over 80% of participants are more likely to pursue other outdoor recreation activities as a result of the program; 2 full-time staff will be trained/certified in off-road adaptive cycling; 30% increase in the number of SCI clients served by the cycling program in the first year; and, 90% gained skills and a better understanding of off-road cycling Outcomes will be measured by surveys and observations.

This project is focused on improving quality of life for individuals with disabilities through adaptive sports and recreation. We will increase the number of individuals with SCI participation in off-road cycling as well as help create a healthy, no barrier mindset in our clients. The freedom, fitness, and independence created by accessing the outdoors on a bike has a profound and powerful impact on confidence as well as social and emotional character of our clients with SCI. Through our 10-year history, STARS has developed a standard of excellence, accountability, innovation, and collaboration that is among the top in our industry nationally. This is evidenced by our metrics, reported outcomes, and our current $6,000,000 Ranch project that will create an Adaptive Center of Excellence that will give STARS even greater capability to serve individuals with SCI in cycling and many other sports throughout the year.
