Since 2005, PeopleForBikes’ long-standing support and leadership have been the foundation from which the Safe Routes to School National Partnership has grown into a leading entity for active transportation and healthy community design in the movement to reduce childhood obesity. PeopleForBikes hosted the National Partnership from 2005 to 2014, providing initial funding and generous grants for ongoing general operating support. The National Partnership gained independent non-profit status in 2014, and we value the continuing support and generosity of PeopleForBikes as a partner.

PeopleForBikes is the movement to improve bicycling in the U.S. By collaborating with millions of individual riders, businesses, community leaders, and elected officials, PeopleForBikes is uniting Americans to boost bicycling on a national level for results that can be seen locally.
