Trade and Tariffs

We work to foster a more favorable environment for bike businesses nationwide by fighting against harmful tariffs and taxes that place a financial burden on bike industry suppliers, retailers and consumers. Since 2018, PeopleForBikes has saved the bike industry more than $130 million in Section 301 tariffs, and we have written a proactive trade agenda for a new Congress and administration to continue supporting a healthy bike business.
