When Ivan Vamos was a young boy in Hungary, his bicycle was a prized possession – representing freedom, mobility and fun!

NYBC seeks to target four to six community bike shops annually via small grants from the Vamos Fund. The fundamental idea is to provide community bike shop clients throughout New York State with the same opportunity Ivan had as a young boy in Hungary and again in Brooklyn upon his arrival in the late 1940’s.  Via the Vamos Fund, NYBC seeks to get folks identified by these community bike shops on to bicycles, and to let them experience the joys of freedom, mobility and fun.  Applicant organizations must apply for a minimum of $250 but no more than $1500, exclusive of a mandatory 15% cash match.
