By the year 2040, anyone in the Philadelphia region can ride a bike confidently, joyfully, and free of traffic violence, on a network of connected circuit trails, bike lanes, and safe streets. Bicycling is an accessible form of commuting and recreation for all, connecting people to each other, their neighborhoods, and the region.
We Will Realize Our Vision by Acting on a Core Set of Beliefs
Get Stuff Done. We strive to be efficient, organized, and results-driven in our daily work. We proactively solve problems and adapt well to changing circumstances.
Advance Equity. Internally and externally, we work to create policies and practices that center our commitments to equity across all departments.
Collaborate. Our success requires collaboration and partnerships. We center relationship building and clear communication in our daily work.
Be Accountable. We are accountable to our members, staff, board members, and community partners for excellence in pursuit of our mission and transparency in our operations.
Pursue Balance. The road to victory is long. We will balance work while having plenty of time for family, friends, and joyful bike rides.
Have Fun. Enough said!
Founded in 1972, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia partners with community, governmental, public, and private actors in order to make streets safer and advocate for a greener Philly. The Bicycle Coalition promotes healthy living and healthy transportation; it promotes a way of life, and a way of bringing people together for a greater purpose.
Our Key Initiatives
We advocate for a sustainable transportation network that prioritizes bicycling and safe mobility with an emphasis on under-resourced communities.
Throughout Philadelphia, we advocate for additional protected bicycle lanes and Circuit Trails to create a high quality, connected network of bicycle infrastructure. Throughout the region, we advocate for the completion of the Circuit Trails network and the addition of regional bike lanes. We advocate for state-level policies that advance safe and sustainable mobility across the region, and we partner with coalitions that advance safe and sustainable multimodal mobility.
We work to empower youth and adults to ride bicycles and foster ridership that reflects the diversity of the region.
We seek to build healthy habits, independence, and leadership through the Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling Program; strengthen community-based bicycle safety education programming; and increase broad access to bicycling and bicycling safety education.
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit.
