Bicycling Benefits

PeopleForBikes has long advocated that bikes are a solution to improve our health, connect our communities, boost our economy and heal our planet. We will continue to champion the benefits of bicycling, especially as our nation works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We see bikes playing a critical role in recovery efforts nationwide and will work to insert bikes into any and all local, state and federal COVID recovery initiatives.
