The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia received a $5,000 grant to help develop a Bicycle Ambassadors program in the city. Ambassadors will attend community events to teach bicycle safety and etiquette, and they will serve as mentors by helping new bike commuters and recreational cyclists ride safely and confidently. The Bicycle Ambassadors will also lead weekly rides based at local bike shops. The program will inspire cyclists of all abilities to explore Philadelphia by bike.
