Jon and Eddie are each long time Asheville on Bikes members and supporters. We appreciate their willingness to fund this match challenge. They also wanted to be public about their support, why they choose to give, and why our fundraising is important to the future of our City.

From Jon:

Asheville on Bikes continues to make Asheville a better place for me and my family to live. I’m a lifelong bike rider and have run businesses in Asheville for many years. I want people to know how good the work of Asheville on Bikes is.

My children have grown up on your group rides from the beginning, and I really appreciate the time I’ve been able to spend with my kids, exploring Asheville. Asheville on Bikes showed us the routes that we now ride as a family, like the Hominy Creek Greenway. – Jon Sarver

And Eddie:

As Asheville continues to grow it has become more important than ever to improve and expand upon the “bikeability” of our community. Asheville on Bikes is dedicated to this cause at every level. They are educators (riding programs for kids), planners (family/student bike event), activists (bike and political) and much much more. Our Company and my family have all benefited from the changes that Asheville on Bikes has affected in our community! Thank you! – Eddie Dewey
