What Urban Expeditions is about, and why you just gotta accept the Challenge
• Getting people out on their bikes to reconnect with city bicycling is an important step to growing and building a broader support base for bicycle-friendly legislation.
• Urban Expeditions gets people re-engaged with their community and reconnected to the joys of bicycling around town.
• It's a fun free event that reminds people that life in the city looks a lot different when you don't have a car roof over your head.
• It’s a ride for everyone. Invite your grandma, your out-of-shape best friend and your "are-we-there-yet" kid. Urban Expeditions’ gets people moving towards a cleaner, greener and more joyful city.
Urban Expeditions is just one way that C.I.C.L.E. is working to grow bicycling by inviting everyday people to come out and experience the joys (and the benefits) of city bicycling.
