Request Sponsorship for a Bike Month Event
SLO Shift is happy to announce that Rideshare.org is once again offering mini-grant sponsorships up to $200 to help you host an awesome Bike Month Event! Use this form to submit your event details. SLO Shift will begin reviewing the submissions in late March and getting in touch with you then. While you can complete the sponsorship form below as late as 5 PM on Monday, April 8, 2019, the smart kids apply wayyyy way sooner. Please note: events submitted through this form will NOT be automatically added to the community calendar.

Bike Month event sponsorships are available for events happening outside of peak-commute hours during May. This means that events happening Monday through Friday between 7-9 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. can't, won't and don't qualify for sponsorship funds. What about 9:13 a.m. on a Thursday? Yup! 7:27 p.m. on a Tuesday? Yeah buddy! High Noon on Sunday? Heck yes! Anytime on a Saturday or Sunday? Oh yes indeedy!

Don’t forget, Friday, May 17th is Bike to Work Day and Wednesday, May 8th is Bike to School Day. Bike to Work Day and Bike to School Day are programs of SLO Regional Rideshare. Get more info at rideshare.org/btwd and rideshare.org/safe-routes-to-school.

If your Bike Month event does not need sponsorship or you want to submit an event for another time of the year, please use our other form on the "Submit Event" page at sloshift.org/submit-event. Those events will be automatically posted to the calendar. Do not submit the same event with both forms.

No alcoholic beverages may be purchased using grant funds.3. All sponsorships are reimbursable funds, meaning that you will be reimbursed for your costs up to the awarded sponsorship amount. In order to be reimbursed, you will need to turn in itemized receipts and complete an expense sheet provided by sloshift.org absolutely no later than May 31, 2019. 4. IMPORTANT: Recipients must sign a sponsorship agreement and complete a follow-up questionnaire with information about the number of people who attended your event to receive sponsorship funds. PLEASE NOTE: Responding to this last question will appear to make your screen go blank. When this happens imply scroll up to the top of the "blank" page to see your confirmation. Thank You! *
