Beyond The Bicycle Coalition

WHO ARE WE?

The Beyond the Bicycle Coalition is an initiative set up in 2017. We are a group representing users of non-standard cycles (e.g. handcycles, e-cycles, cargobikes) with the aim of facilitating discussion and developing ideas that will lead to improved infrastructure, facilities and recognition, along with reduced user costs, for users of non-standard cycles in London – including, but not limited to, disabled, cargo, freight and family cyclists.

WHY “BEYOND THE BICYCLE”?

The sheer variety of cycles available, the diversity of people using them and the amazing range of uses people have for their cycles takes us beyond the standard image of a “bicycle”. However, it’s also about people using cycles for mobility; it’s about cycling being easier than walking for many people; it’s about being able to use cycles for transporting people and goods; and it’s about families being able to use cycles for transport as an

Illinois Approves Historic Sustainable Capital Bill

 

Spring 2019 saw the passage of Rebuild Illinois which provided about $30 Billion dollars in transportation funding. Below we’ve broken down some of the reasons the capital bill is a good and imortant
investment in Illinois. 

 

Smoother, Safer Rides

The transportation/capital bill approved this eyar in Springfield is designed to make everyone’s commute to work smoother, safer, and in some cases, quicker. The funding will make possible long
overdue improvements in local municpal, county and township roads and bridges, state roads and bridges, urban and rural transit systems, rail-to-road crossings and airports throughout the
state. 

 

Decaying roads present a real danger and also drive up the costs for motorists who need to use them. Potholes can bust a tire and tire rim. Cracks in the highway can cause vehicles to be thrown into
the next lane, potentially into the path of other vehicles. Many

Atlanta Bicycle Coalition

Bike Shops are Essential Business

Our lives are being challenged in many ways — businesses are being closed and workers are left without income;  transportation decisions and options become dilemmas; spaces to practice safe, healthful activities are being reshaped.
At the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, we’re doing what we can to lessen the impact of these challenges.  This week, we worked with local bike shop owners, city council members, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and ATL DOT Commissioner Josh Rowan to establish bike shops as essential businesses under the Mayor’s shelter-in-place executive order.  In our outreach to bike shop owners on Tuesday, we learned that some bike shops were closed and many were seeking clarification on the city’s stance.
Today, we are pleased to relay this message from Peter Kadushin, the Director of Communications for the mayor. 
“Bike shops are considered essential under the order. While not listed specifically, bike shops are
