(TREVOSE, PA) – TMA Bucks announced in partnership with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia that the transportation management association has become their Bucks County volunteer advocate affiliate.
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia leads the movement to make bicycling a safe and fun way to get around for anyone in the region. Bike riders of all stripes are part of our movement to promote this healthy and sustainable way of getting around.
“TMA Bucks is extremely excited to work together with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia to advocate for safe on-road networks, biking as an alternative commute option, bicycle facilities and connected trails,” said TMA Bucks Executive Director Stephen Noll. “Bucks County has not been represented for quite some time and the TMA is proud to step up and encourage people across the county to integrate bicycling into their lives to increase access to opportunities, enrich community, and improve health.”
TMA Bucks project coordinator Briana Burley will oversee this initiative for the organization.
“As a leading partner of the Circuit Trails, The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is thrilled to have Bucks County represented by TMA Bucks as our new affiliate chair,” said Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia regional organizer Patrick Monahan. “Beginning 2021, I will be working with Briana Burley of TMA Bucks to build local support for cyclists who are interested in getting involved with the growing Circuit Trails network.”

The Bicycle Coalition’s Biking the Region program believes that bicycling in suburban communities and rural areas is one of the great joys of living in communities with lower density. These areas also bring unique challenges and opportunities. We work to improve bicycling in the eight Pennsylvania and New Jersey counties surrounding Philadelphia by organizing local communities of bicyclists and pedestrians, collaborating with bicycle clubs, building trails, and advocating for pro-bike and pedestrian legislation.

Great to read this article. We have needed a voice in this area for some time. I live in the Perkasie area where this interest is alive but not with the good focus. I’ve been a member of BCGP and think their experience and relationship will be excellent.
