MassBike’s Vision for the Future
Bicycling in Massachusetts is a safe, respected, convenient, and enjoyable way to get around. Roads throughout the state are safe and welcoming for cyclists, and all users interact in a courteous and legal manner. Car-free pathways connect our communities, bicycles are fully integrated into our public transportation system, and secure bike parking is located where people need it. People of all kinds and means choose to bicycle for life, work, and play.

    MassBike is thrilled to announce we have been selected to receive a 2022 AARP Community Challenge grant. We are one of 260 grantees selected from across all 50 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

    With this quick-action grant we will be hosting an intergenerational bicycle program in the City of Worcester. We will be leading group rides and workshops for youths and older adults, pairing 20 teenage riders with 20 riders aged 50+ for a series of educational programs and community bike rides. The workshops will cover a diverse set of topics, including urban cycling basics, overcoming barriers to bicycling, highlighting the storied cycling history in Worcester, and more. The group rides will explore different Worcester neighborhoods and collaborate with partners throughout the city.

    “We are incredibly proud that AARP selected MassBike for this investment,” stated Galen Mook, MassBike's Executive Director. “We are looking forward to this intergenerational bicycling program that will bring together different communities. This program will also complement our Worcester E-Bike program and further community connections to help bring better bicycling to the city.”

    Massachusetts, We've Been Challenged to Drive Less, Bike More

     

    We're joining the League of American Bicyclists in their mission to build a healthier, stronger, cleaner, and more economically stable nation one bike ride at a time through the "Drive Less, Bike More" campaign. Last year, the campaign far exceeded its goal of turning 1 million miles of would-be car trips into 1 million miles of bike trips, resulting in a grand total of 1,500,000 miles ridden by bike and over 167,337 lbs of CO2 spared for the planet.
