The Evansville Bicycle Club
The Evansville Bicycle Club (EBC) is a recreational organization that centers its activities around the sport of bicycling. Our membership includes over 200 individuals and families, most of whom live in the Southwestern Indiana area. The EBC has been active for over 30 years, and is a year-round organization. Improving bicycling opportunities and educating the public are two major goals of the Evansville Bicycle Club (EBC). The club uses several avenues to accomplish these goals. EBC members also “spread the word” and educate the public on safety practices in cycling. One way this is done is by conducting “Rodeos” throughout the tri-state that concentrate on children to learn the “rules of the road” and then immediately practice on a “street course” with actual streets and signs. At many healthy lifestyle initiatives you will find an EBC booth promoting safety information and talking about safety. EBC members also volunteer to speak to various service organizations on changes occurring in the cycling world.
healthy communities partnership
Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP) believes one of the best ways to ensure a healthy community is to make sure organizations that serve the community lead by example with policies and an intentional environment that promotes making the healthy choice, the easy choice. In 2018, HCP partnered with the Community Action Program of Evansville, who oversees Head Start, to conduct an assessment of their organization with the goal of identifying opportunities within their policy, systems, and environment, which can improve the quality of life for their employees and the community members they serve.
