Partnerships Increase Our Influence
PeopleForBikes forges strategic partnerships to broaden our strength and influence. We align with groups and initiatives that have the greatest potential to improve bicycling in local and global communities.
From supporting programs that make towns safer for biking to sponsoring national bicycling conferences, we focus our efforts on programs that work. The League of American Bicyclists, the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the Alliance for Biking and Walking, and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership are just some of the national groups we fund; we’ve invested more than $5 million in the last six years alone. PeopleForBikes has served as the primary sponsor of the League’s National Bike Summit, held annually in Washington, D.C., since its inception in 2001. We've also partnered with international bike non-profit World Bicycle Relief on a joint fundraising and awareness campaign, United For Bikes, celebrating the power of bicycles to change lives locally and globally.
Together, we demonstrate that improved opportunities for bicycling benefit us all.
