About the Bicycle Coalition



The Bicycle Coalition promotes cycling advocacy, healthy living and healthy transportation; it promotes a way of life, a way of bringing people together for a greater purpose.

Our small staff come from many walks of life, but we share the same passion: make bicycling a safe and fun way to get around for anyone in Greater Philadelphia.

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. Since 1972, we have partnered with community, governmental, public and private actors in order to effect change that makes our streets safer for everyone.
