Take a Stand for Cycling was a program in which Reliance Foundry made a series of commercial bike rack donations.

Resulting from a new product line in 2012, and a subsequent overstocked warehouse, we saw an opportunity to help communities in which we do business. We launched the Take a Stand for Cycling campaign and offered the discontinued bike racks, for free, to academic institutions, community service groups, churches, and other non-profit groups across North America.

Interested parties were asked to review the catalog of discontinued public bike racks, and email us a brief description of their organization with their bike rack model and quantity request. After reviewing various submissions, Reliance Foundry accepted over 30 requests.

Some of the non-profit organizations that received bicycle parking from the Take a Stand for Cycling include the following:

We hope that the efforts of these organizations and the donations have provided greater opportunities for children, students, and commuters to enjoy the many benefits that cycling offers.

Though the Take a Stand program officially ended in 2012, we also donated over 10 bike racks to a few local community organizations in 2016.
