BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—Bikes Belong has launched a new Web site that provides in-depth and easily accessible information. The Web site caters to a variety of audiences, including Bikes Belong members, journalists, government leaders, grant seekers, bicycle advocates, and the general public.
“We need to be able to serve as many different people as possible because we have many types of people coming to our site,” said Avery Stonich, marketing and communications director for Bikes Belong Coalition.
On of the site's key features is a searchable map of community grants Bikes Belong has awarded since 1999 (143 and counting). Visitors can see what projects the organization has funded, and search for projects by location and type.
In addition, the Web site features an expanded resources section, including a new press kit for journalists, tip sheets on how to make bicycling better in your community, bicycling photos, and more. Bikes Belong plans to expand this section to provide a growing library of essential information for the bicycling community.
“The new site is just the beginning. We plan to continually enhance it to make it an invaluable resource that helps people help bicycling,” Stonich said.
Texture Media, a Boulder company specializing in Web development, built the site. The company has created Web sites for Crocs, Pearl Izumi and Thule, among others.
