Our Goals

Our Goals

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 town. We believe this dream can be a reality, and together with our members, we are making it happen. Here’s how:

Stronger together. By connecting millions of riders, we are a single powerful voice for bicycling. Whether you’re a bike commuter, roadie, mountain biker, casual rider, pro-bike business owner, or all of the above, if you’re a person and you enjoy riding a bike, we represent you.

Spread the word. Busy with jobs and families, most people don’t have time to stay on top of issues that affect bicycling. And that’s okay—it’s why we’re here. PeopleForBikes will alert you to issues in your area and make taking action easy.

Riding made simple. The choice to ride a bike is yours. The responsibility to ensure safe and convenient riding opportunities is ours. With our united voice and political clout, we work with city, state, and national decision makers to encourage cost-effective investments in bicycling that will benefit our country now and well into the future.

The hub. All across America and the world, bicycle advocates are building local relationships, growing their communities, and formulating the keys to success for their areas. We work to enhance these efforts by bringing reinforcements, money, inspiration, and positive publicity to local groups.

We have developed key measures of progress for these goals. We call them 5X. Read more about how we're measuring our progress towards 5X.
