We would like to introduce the Beneficiary of the Tour de Whatcom, Incite! Cycles.
Incite! Cycles is a local 501(c)3 that umbrellas bicycle events such as Cascade Cross (a fall/winter Cyclocross series) and Bellingham Grind Corps (a spring/summer gravel grinding series). We also support partners such as Queens of Dirt and Bellingham Bike Polo. Incite! has been an organization since May 2017 that builds on a community of cycling enthusiasts that have been sponsoring events for over 10 years. With the move to a non-profit structure, we aim to support organizers of emerging events. This coming year we will be launching a quarterly application process for grants and microloans, as well as providing technical workshops on fundraising, permitting, insurance, and event planning.
