Despite everything — like, really, everything — 2020 has been a year with accomplishments for the Bicycle Coalition and our supporters.
From hosting our fifth Vision Zero Conference at Temple University; to working to get Martin Luther King Jr. Drive open to people; to keeping regional bike shops open, safely, during the pandemic; it was a year of playing both defense and offense for the bicyclists and pedestrians of the Delaware Valley.
Throughout the year, our education and policy teams were able to prosper and stay safe in the process. We hosted virtual events, gave away masks, worked with the City and region to get more bike lanes and trails established, and oversaw a scholarship program for our Bicycle Coalition Youth Athletes. The pandemic hurt our city, our region, and our efforts, but we all adapted, and thrived. It was quite a year.
As usual, as has been the case throughout our 47-year history, nothing we were able to accomplish this year would have been possible without the support of our members. Time and again, Bicycle Coalition members dedicate their time and money toward the goal of better bicycle infrastructure and education for everyone.
