Giving the gift of cycling isn’t always about what you can give to your loved ones. There are so many people in the world who are not fortunate enough to have a bicycle, who are not lucky enough to have their health to ride a bike or who do not have any mode of transportation to get to school or work. We are thankful for the work of amazing bicycle-related charities who use cycling as a way to raise funds and give bikes to those who are in need. So, when you are thinking about a gift to give to your favorite cyclist, maybe the best gift would be a donation in their name to one of these awesome organizations.
People for Bikes are kind of just that… they are a group of people that love bikes. But more than that, they advocate for bikes! To do that, People for Bikes work to unite individual riders, businesses, community leaders, and elected officials to create a voice for cycling and all of its benefits.
The projects that People for Bikes work on range widely from generating protected bike lanes with their Green Lane Project (creating 320 protected bike lanes in 98 cities) to urban bike parks funded by their Community Grant Program.
People for Bikes are doing big things. So, JOIN the movement and add your name in support of better bicycling (it’s FREE). Or, you can DONATE to help build more awesome bike lanes, facilities and safe places to ride!
