About the Boston Cyclists Union 

The BCU’s mission is to transform the streets of Greater Boston into equitable and inviting people-centered spaces affording access and connection for every body. We accomplish this through organizing, advocacy, public actions, and holding city and state agencies accountable to build out the network of safe, protected bike infrastructure. In addition, we provide and teach free bike repair at farmers markets, and hold events to support and grow the bike community. 

Our 1,000+ member grassroots organization is one of the most active and effective transportation advocacy groups in Metro Boston. The Boston Cyclists Union works to increase ridership in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline. We aim to connect our homes, parks, schools, paths and business districts with a network of low-stress bike routes, including quiet neighborhood streets and protected bike lanes, so that people of all ages and abilities can feel safe and comfortable riding a bike. We see our organizing as connected to other issues of environmental justice, mobility justice, and housing justice. Recognizing that systemic racism and inequities have impacted how our cities are built and how projects continue to be prioritized, we advocate for an equitable distribution of resources and safe cycling infrastructure throughout Boston.
