The People for Bikes Movement

April 27, 2010

We all ride.  Now we can all ride as one.  Join the People for Bikes Movement.

We’re all united by a passion for bikes.  Bikes keep us healthy,take us from point A to point B, save us gas money, make our air cleaner and our roads less congested. Bikes fill our lives with adventure and excitement, relaxing our minds and energizing our souls.

Peopleforbikes.org is dedicated to channeling that passion to improve the future of bicycling.  Their goal is to gather a million names of support, to speak with one, powerful voice—to make bicycling safer, more convenient and appealing for everyone.

Simply put, this organization believes that life is far more enjoyable when it’s experienced on two wheels. They believe that by coming together, we can make our world a better place to ride.

Get there by Bike

Why to Ride

What’s the Goal?

The goal of peopleforbikes.org is to gather a million names of cycling supporters to speak with one powerful voice—to let policy makers, the media and the public know that bicycling is important and should be promoted.

One for all.

Whether you’re a bike commuter, a roadie, a mountain biker or just a casual rider, by uniting your voice with a million others, we can build a national movement to improve bicycling in our country.  We can make a statement through our sheer numbers by raising public awareness and demonstrating our passion to our leaders in Congress and in cities and states throughout the country.

Let our voices be heard.

Every six years the federal government allocates billions of dollars to expand and improve our country’s transportation infrastructure.  Peopleforbikes.org will use our powerful, united voice to urge U.S Senators and Congressmen to make new, cost-effective investments in bicycling facilities and programs that will benefit us now and well into the future.

Together we can make bicycling better.

Imagine a place where one bike lane leads to the next.  Where trails, bridges and underpasses lead safely to exactly where you want to go.  And regardless of your bicycling experience and fitness, you can pedal smoothly across the street, across town, or even across the country.  We believe this can be a reality and that by uniting we can make our world a better place to ride.

Power to the pedal people.

Passion is nothing without a purpose.  If we’re going to positively influence our country’s outlook on cycling we need to come together.  We need your participation.   Join the over 100,000 cycling advocates signed on to support the People for Bikes Movement and let’s make our states and nation a great place FOR EVERYONE to ride a bike!
