BiCi Co. is Bicicleta y Comunidad

The Center for Latino Progress is promoting an opportunity to improve youth and adult safety, while also increasing our community’s mobility and access to jobs in the City of Hartford. Bici is the Spanish motto for bicicleta and Co. stands for comunidad (community). Located at 95 Park St. at the edge of downtown, BiCi Co. is a bike outlet and a safe space for bike enthusiasts and future riders. BiCi Co.’s successful summer pilot program had 30 teens learning bike safety, mechanics and history. Now BiCi Co. is expanding to include year-round programs and services for adults and youth.
