This partnership highlights the impact of cycling on the community and the importance of providing convenient and accessible parking for cyclists.
Heart of Brevard is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving the vital downtown district of Brevard, NC. Earth Mountain Bicycle is a locally owned and operated bike shop that offers a wide selection of bicycles and accessories, as well as repair and maintenance services.
Together, Heart of Brevard and Earth Mountain Bicycle recognize the need for improved bicycle infrastructure and accessibility in Brevard.
