About the Bicycle Coalition


Our small but shockingly effective staff come from many walks of life, but we share the same passion: to make Greater Philadelphia a better place to ride a bicycle. Since 1972, the Bicycle Coalition has been promoting bicycling as a healthy, low-cost, and environmentally-friendly form of transportation and recreation.

We take our work seriously. But riding a bike is fun – we don’t let the fact that it’s convenient, healthy, green and affordable distract from the pure joy of it.

We work with every bicyclist in mind: young and old, racer and beginner, the Montgomery County mother biking to school with her children, and the South Philly graphic designer biking to work. We partner with many different community, governmental, public and private actors in order to effect change that makes our streets safer for everyone.
