Volunteers make the magic happen! We began as an all-volunteer organization and we still rely on volunteers for our events, outreach, and data collection. If you are interested in making a difference in the fun and safety of bicycling in the Philadelphia region, you came to the right place. There are many ways you can get involved in this effort.
Meet Amanpreet, one of the many Bicycle Coalition volunteer all stars:
I always wanted to learn to bike and searching through the internet led me to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
They have classes for learning to ride as an adult as well as introduction to urban riding. I actually took the urban riding class and was inspired to “feel the air in my hair” while on my bike; and I surely did when I actually was biking around during my class. A two hour class got me from nothing to on my bike and beyond!
The class introduced me to the BCGP group as well and I met some wonderful people that inspired me to get more involved.
So far, I have been to the Explore the Circuit rides and promoted BCGP on Bike to Work Day and at the Bike Expo. It truly has been a wonderful experience to be involved with BCGP.
