Revolution Cycles Keeps Water By-Cycle Program Rolling

Casey Trees’ success in re-treeing D.C. is largely due to volunteer support. Each year, thousands of youth and adults donate their time and talents to plant and care for trees across the District. We are also fortunate to have individuals, businesses and foundations who support our programs and initiatives with generous financial and in-kind gifts. These gifts are especially meaningful when they come at a time of great need. Clarendon-based Revolution Cycles is one such partner who recently came to our aid.

When a street bike from our Water By-Cycle (WBC) fleet was stolen, Revolution Cycles stepped forward and donated a new Trek 700 7-speed street bike for our use. The donation of the bike meant our Summer Crew could continue caring for trees in parts of the city difficult to navigate by truck. Because of Revolution Cycles, our WBC team has "touched" more than 1,875 trees since June 22. By the end of the session, we expect the WBC fleet to have watered, weeded and mulched more than 2,600 trees. We thank Revolution Cycles for its donation, valuing our mission and helping to establish a green legacy in the District.

Our new Trek 700. Thanks!

Do you share Revolution Cycles’ philanthropic spirit? Consider sponsoring a fall Community Tree Planting event, making a financial or in-kind (product or service) donation or volunteering at an upcoming event.
