North America has a hard time encouraging people to ride their bikes because they don’t feel safe enough to hit the roads. This is where People for Bikes comes in.
The organization, headquartered in the US state Colorado, is nonprofit with a mission to promote the bicycle and cycling industry. People for Bikes believes that any community where more people are riding more securely will make it an even better place not just to live but to play and work as well. They do this by providing people with information such as city ratings which will tell you which cities are the best for biking. In addition, they’re doing their very best to make e-bike laws consistent throughout the United States.
People for Bikes addresses the following issues that beginners typically face:
- Not knowing the safest routes.
- Having a hard time finding other people to bike with.
- Thinking that cycling is complicated and intimidating.
According to the people behind the organization, working together and sharing the safest, most secure and fun routes everywhere will encourage people to get on their bikes. This will also connect lives and provide an opportunity for people to live a more active lifestyle.
