Published June 11, 2015

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., (BRAIN) — Performance Bicycle raised $13,448 for PeopleForBikes during May, National Bike Month. The total is a mix of donations directly from customers and Performance Bicycle matching funds.

"We are humbled by the generous support our customers have provided to help improve cycling infrastructure by donating to PeopleForBikes" said Performance Bicycle CEO David Pruitt. "We are proud to partner with PeopleForBikes and know our combined advocacy efforts will make a difference."

Customers were able to make an in-store or online donation of $2 to support PeopleForBikes' mission of creating more trails, bike parks and protected bike lanes. Performance matched all of the donations made by its customers.

"Our vision is that bicycling infrastructure is improved to the point that safe and reliable access for all riders is the norm across America, and not the exception," said PeopleForBikes President Tim Blumenthal. "The generous donation from Performance and its customers will go a long way in helping us achieve that goal."
