These are weird times for everyone, but we’re not slowing down our advocacy for safe bicycling in the Philadelphia Region. Bicycling, as we see it, can be part of the solution to unprecedented situations like this one, in which deliveries, safe commutes and both physical and mental exercise are more important than ever.
That’s why we’ve worked over the last two weeks to keep bike shops open (both at the city and state levels), close Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive to motor vehicles, and have joined with other advocacy organizations to work on opening up more streets to people for safe social distancing.
And tonight, we’re going to talk about it in our first Live Virtual Community Meeting of the pandemic. Join Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Sarah Clark Stuart and Policy Manager Randy LoBasso as we discuss the ways we’re working to make Philadelphia a safer place to ride a bicycle during these uncertain times, and how we believe the bicycle can be part of the solution.
The meeting takes place at 6pm and will be live-streamed over Zoom.
