Boston Cyclists Union

Boston Cyclists Union envisions a Boston that is world renowned for year-round cycling, a place where people ride for fun, exercise, and transportation.

This vision aims to include all Bostonians—men, women, children, and seniors from every neighborhood—in support of a network of safe and accessible bicycle routes to school, work and play each day. Such a bicycle network will allow children ride to school, men and women pedal by in work clothes, and seniors wheel along at a more relaxing pace on bicycle lanes, bicycle boulevards and cycle tracks. With bicycles commonplace, residents are healthier and have reduced levels of cardiovascular disease, asthma and obesity. They also have more expendable income, more free time, and greater choice in how they move about their city.

The Wagner Foundation believes that transit which is well-funded and integrated to support cyclists and pedestrians is part of a successful urban lifestyle. Models for greener city; with less pavement and more open space, like gardens, parks and outdoor plazas encourage healthier routines, safety, and greater civic engagements.

The Boston Cyclists Union is helping Bostonians lead healthier lives by promoting the everyday use of the bicycle for transportation. The BCU repairs bikes, educates new riders, and organizes neighborhood residents who would like to voice support for friendlier street designs, bike paths, and public spaces.
