This year, there’s a lot to be thankful for. With your help, we’ve fought for and won improvements to our roads that will go a long way towards making biking in the Boston area safer and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.

Thanks to your grassroots advocacy, new bike infrastructure has been added in Boston, Cambridge and Somerville in just the past few months!

In Boston:

In Cambridge:

In Somerville:

  • Thanks to the incredible work of the Somerville Bike Committee, the City installed protected bike lanes on Washington Street east of Union Square! This change comes as a part of a larger set of improvements to Union Square, including adding protected bike lanes to Webster Avenue next Spring!
  • The Beacon Street cycletracks will also be completed next year, thanks to the work of the Somerville Bike Committee and the Bike Union back in 2012. Together we organized a massive campaign to build public support for the project!

We couldn’t be more grateful for the support of our members and friends like you who have helped make all of this possible.

We’re also grateful for the incredible generosity of two anonymous donors, who have agreed to match up to $3,500 of donations made between now and Tuesday night!

If you were already planning on donating to the Bike Union on #GivingTuesday, now your donation will go twice as far! Please help up reach our goal of raising $3,500 in the next 3 days, so that we can continue to fight for the kinds of changes on our streets that will make biking safer and easier for everyone! Donate today!

Even better, not only will your donation be matched by anonymous donors, Crimson Bikes is donating a brand new bike, to be raffled off at the end of the year! From now to December 31st, anyone who joins, renews or donates $36 or more to the Bike Union, or refers a friend who donates, has a chance to win a brand new Schwinn Brighton!

So let your friends and family know about the Bike Union, encourage them to join, or buy them a membership as a gift! You’ll be helping to make biking in Boston better, and you might start off 2018 with a brand new bike!
