Each month, Cinnaire’s Advancing Communities Podcast brings together our Chief Strategy Officer Jim Peffley with thought leaders, policy makers and others who are making an impact in the community development and affordable housing industries. Our guests share their experiences and perspective on a  range of topics, each supporting the belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.

In this episode, Jim sits down with Laura Wilburn, executive director of the Urban Bike Project of Wilmington, Inc. Urban Bike Project supports the community by providing opportunities for bicycling as a healthy, affordable and practical means of transportation. Urban Bike focuses on education and self-reliance by providing bikes, self repair facilities and training to youth and adults in low income areas. The Urban Bike Project is a thriving center of community activity and a hub for community meetings, special events and Wilmington youth. Jim and Laura discuss biking as an affordable means of transportation, a vehicle for a healthy lifestyle and the many ways access to bicycling and training can positively impact communities.
