   Blanchard’s Coffee Roasting Co. is happy to partner with Richmond Bicycle Studio (RBS) and announce this beautifully designed cycling jersey. More than anything, we want to highlight the mission and the people behind Richmond Bicycle Studio and Richmond Cycling Corps.

    Richmond Bicycle Studio (RBS) is a full-service bike shop that was born out of Richmond Cycling Corps (RCC).  Richmond Cycling Corps is a youth-outreach non-profit founded by semi-pro cyclist Craig Dodson that works with young people living in Richmond’s public housing. The team at RCC creates and coaches cycling teams and, more importantly, gives the children help in all aspects of their lives. From getting school supplies, teaching them how to drive, and helping them get jobs to break the vicious cycle of poverty, Craig Dodson and other Richmond Cycling Corps employees do everything they can to make sure their students have no excuses to fail.

    RCC opened the nations first and only inner-city mountain bike park, Armstrong Park, where the high school cycling team can practice and test their cycling skills and the nation's only inner city mountain bike team!

    With a growing racing team, it only made sense for RCC to open a bike shop so they would have access to parts at wholesale cost and make repairs when needed.  In addition to servicing the RCC youth bikes, RBS is a full scale bike shop offering sales and service to the general public.  Since RBS opened in 2011, every dollar earned goes to supporting RCC and changing the lives of youth in Richmond.

    A portion of proceeds from the sale of each cycling kit will go to RBS.
