As the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia celebrates our 50 years of impact, we are calling on our friends old and new to join the movement to make roads safer for bicyclists, runners and all those who use them.
50 Years of Making Everyone’s Ride Better
Since 1972, the Bicycle Coalition has been advocating for high quality bicycle infrastructure throughout Greater Philadelphia. We have a promising future continuing to advocate for equitable access to safe mobility, and for federal, state and local investment in climate-conscious multi-modal transportation infrastructure. In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, we’ll be covering highlights from each of the five decades of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s existence (read the first installment in the series: The Bicycle Coalition’s First Decade) and we’ve also created a new way for you to support our work for the next 50 years and beyond.
The Inaugural Annual Giving Campaign
Beyond better biking, we are advocates and educators. That’s why we’re launching our inaugural Annual Giving Campaign this year: to increase our ability to be advocates for the safety of bicyclists, pedestrians, and all road users. Among other initiatives, we’re working with local and state governments to enact change through policies and legislation in a meaningful way, while also developing educational programs that are inclusive and that benefit the community at large.
With your help, we strive to continue to improve the health, wellness, and sustainability of our communities throughout Philadelphia and eight surrounding PA & NJ counties. Through advocacy and education, we will continue to work toward making our communities safe and welcoming for all.
By contributing to our first Annual Giving Campaign, you are empowering a community that is making it safer to travel, whether you’re on wheels or feet. Your support helps us connect with and educate future bicyclists and helps us provide a unified front when we advocate and organize for safer streets, connected trails, and better places to ride.
