In the spirit of promoting greater civility among bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians, we are holding two street events this week to promote our courtesy campaign Bike Nice. This past Monday, we handed out free Capital One coffee cards and Halloween treats at the corner of Broad and Pine Streets. On Thursday, November 1st, we will be on the South Street Bridge from 4:30-5:30 next to the eastbound bike lane at the 76 on ramp. Hope to see you there!

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
