City Riding

PeopleForBikes makes city riding better by securing funding for more, better and well-connected bike infrastructure and advocating for legislation that improves road safety for all users, including bicyclists. We know that in order to get more people riding more often, those people need places to ride that are comfortable and safe. We work with elected officials at the local, state and federal level to fund the creation of well-connected bike networks that get people where they need to go and advocate for policies that make streets safer for all who use them.
