Good People In Cycling, Episode I - Craig Dodson, Richmond Cycling Corp from Road Holland on Vimeo. Through my experiences as a graduate student at NYU Wagner thus far I truly believe there are many ways to approach public service. My path leads me through grad school. But that’s not the only path. Do good. And do it now.

While so much of the world may see cyclists as neon spandex clad ants that take up too much of the road, the reality is that there are so many wonderful people involved in our sport.

To highlight them, Road Holland is kicking off a film series entitled “Good People In Cycling.” In each episode we’ll take a look at people who are doing extraordinary but often unsung work to help others.

Episode I features Craig Dodson of the Richmond Cycling Corp from Richmond, VA. Craig founded RCC as a way to give back all that he got out of cycling to kids who might otherwise never get on two wheels. In the process, he’s changing lives.

my burley travoy pulls through with the help of a 700c inner tube carrying 2 pvc pipes, a 32 gallon bucket. Inside the bucket: four 5 gallon pails, four terra cotta pots, 1 huge plastic pot, 2 hose clamps…
the inner tube really held the bucket in place. i went as fast as 20+mph on a downhill and it stayed secured. i think i found my perfect setup to make recycling runs, maybe add a lower strap next time just to be sure.

In traffic-choked L.A., a car lane is given to bicycles:  City officials unveil a new 2.2-mile path stretching along 7th Street from Catalina Avenue in Koreatown to Figueroa Street downtown. All that was needed was paint, a few signs and some traffic light adjustments.

'Think of the city of Detroit and burned out and deserted… where it’s not crime-infested? Yes, the city’s had its ups and downs, but that hasn’t stopped residents from trying to raise the standard of living for all. For some in Detroit, that work involves advocating bicycling… as a way to save money, improve health, and even provide skills for disadvantaged youth.

We know all about the environmental benefits of bicycling, but, as “Detroit Bike City,” a short film by Alex Gallegos shows, biking can also serve as a way to empower communities… whether by giving kids opportunities that are safe and supportive, or by creating economic growth in otherwise hard-hit areas. Gallegos focuses on community, non- and for-profit efforts that are making a difference for Detroit residents: the Eastside Riders Bike Club,Back Alley Bikes,  Corktown Cycles, and Critical Mass Detroit.

Take a look, and let us know what you think… can bikes bring life to cities that have been pronounced dead?’

awesome bike trailer, this would’ve saved me numerous multiple trips to the nurseries and garden stores i rode with this.
where can i special order one from Trevor? :)

Meet Trevor, one of our fabulous compost delivery guys.  Can you believe the size of that trailer?  The original model, designed, really, because of the ease of acquisition of materials, was made from a shopping cart basket with bike wheels on the side.  Apparently this one is better because it’s less tippy.
