The COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effects have forced Americans to completely rethink how we work, gather, learn, shop, dine, access basic services and move around our cities and communities. As we changed our habits, we turned to the bicycle in droves — so much so that we have officially entered a bike boom.

Our vision for biking in America is to emerge from COVID-19 better than ever before — for bikes, for our communities and for our planet. Bikes can’t solve every issue America is facing, but they can play an important role in the recovery of our nation.
Here's how you can help keep the Bike Boom going:


Read a recent op-ed from our new president and CEO Jenn Dice on her vision for the future of bicycling, the bike industry and America, and what you and your customers can do to make that vision a reality.


Bicycle businesses can play a role in supporting safe and continued bike riding, and be drivers of change to improve mobility in their communities during the current pandemic and any future challenges the world may face. Use this toolkit to get the resources you need to advocate for improved bike infrastructure, bikes for essential workers, bikeshare and larger mobility solutions and improvements.


Federal, state and local government investments in bicycling infrastructure and expanded and improved places to ride are at the forefront of keeping the bike boom going.
