Every day, two dozen PeopleForBikes staffers go to work at our Colorado headquarters, in the field, and in Washington, D.C. Our team focuses on making every bike ride safer, easier to access and more fun. We work for you, your family, your neighbors, your business and your community. We rely on our members, partners and the 1.25-million Americans—including you!—who have become PeopleForBikes supporters and advocates.
Launched in 1999 as Bikes Belong, PeopleForBikes includes both an industry coalition of bicycling suppliers and retailers, as well as a charitable foundation. Our foundation is where we house our major programs and engage individual members, affiliate organizations, and corporate sponsors.
Over the years, we have spent more than $30 million to make bicycling better. We’ve invested $2.1 million in community bicycling projects and leveraged more than $654 million in federal, state, and private funding. We have contributed millions to national groups and programs like the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, the League of American Bicyclists and the International Mountain Bicycling Association, ensuring safer places to ride for both children and adults.
