PFB takes D.C.❗️🇺🇸 This week, we’ve been meeting with members of Congress to talk about bike-friendly policies, including the recently proposed Bicycle Commuter Act, which would enable employers to offer a modest benefit to employees who commute by bike.
The countdown is on to the release of the 2019 City Ratings! @placesforbikes takes a data-driven approach to identifying the best U.S. cities and towns for bicycling to help city leaders pinpoint improvements, and make riding better for everyone — whether you bike, drive or walk.

The 2019 @youthbikesummit brought together 320 young people from around the U.S. (and Canada and Denmark) in Queens, New York to talk about all things bike related.
In attendance were founders and instructors from @cycle.bici, a group of passionate educators and bikers bringing biking to women and girls in Queens.
Bici Niñxs just started a new program in Ridgewood to bring biking and free bikes to 10 immigrant girls. They are multilingual in Spanish, English and Bengali with strong ties to Queens, and will also be focusing on outreach in Bushwick, Brooklyn. They’ve got an ongoing goal to provide a space to learn how to bike safely, be comfortable on a bike and to be able to continue the practice even after the bike immersion ends.
