Local innovation makes biking

safe, convenient and inclusive

PeopleForBikes' Local Innovation programs develop strong community partnerships that help community leaders and local organizations plan, build and promote great places to ride. These programs accelerate progress locally and create best practices that build stronger, safer and healthier communities. 

Our Goals

Safety

Only a small percentage of riders feel comfortable riding with traffic, and for many, the fear of being harassed in public is an even bigger deterrent. Safer places for bikes give more people the confidence to get out and ride.

Convenience

People bike more when they can comfortably ride wherever they want to go, whether its work, school, shopping or parks. Biking can bring communities together.

Inclusivity

Biking has to appeal to all kinds of people regardless of age, income, race, gender or ability. Riding comes in many forms — 
on streets, trails, for recreation and fitness, or just around town.
