People for Bikes Organization
People for Bikes is an organization that promotes bicycle riding in America. Or, in their own words, they “aim to make riding better for everyone.” Of course those of us at Trailsnet hopes that means they promote more bike paths & bicycle trails nationwide including the promotion and connection of current bike trail networks. Getting folks on bicycles is more than just a recreational pursuit, although that is definitely part of the equation. But it is also about helping the environment, improving citizen fitness, lowering obesity rates, alleviating traffic congestion, improving public safety and making our communities better places to live. Bicycle advocacy is more than just a pipe dream. It is worthwhile and vital goal that should be front and center on the minds of politicians and average United States citizens. Thanks to People for Bikes and their efforts to improve bicycling in our nation.
People for Bikes Survey
Please take a couple moments to complete the People for Bikes survey and help them get a better idea what we want and need when it comes to bicycling infrastructure and goals. It’s a simple survey and is a worthwhile endeavor.
