Take the pledge with People for Bikes

During the National Bike Summit, Bike Belong announced a new initiative to engage more bicyclists at the grassroots level. Their goals is to “…gather a million names of support, to speak with one, powerful voice to make bicycling safer, more convenient and appealing for everyone.”

Every day, millions of Americans ride for their health, for the environment, for their communities, and for the pure joy of bicycling. But until now, only a fraction of riders have stood up to help improve bicycling in America.

Peopleforbikes.org is going to change all that. We’ll build on the expert work of existing bike advocacy groups — our partners — to develop a powerful movement with the clout and influence to get things done. That means promoting bike-riding on an individual level, but also sending a unified message to our elected leaders, the media, and the public that bicycling should have their full support.

You can help them reach their goal by making the pledge on the People for Bikes web site.
