It’s with joy and gratitude that we can call last Thursday’s Biketoberfest a resounding success. At our annual party this year, we:
- Topped our fundraising goal and brought in more than $35,000 — our largest tally ever
- Met many new members and first-time attendees, a rewarding sign that our community (and clout) continue to grow
- Heard from State Rep. Nika Elugardo, one of this year’s Golden Cog recipients for her leadership on bike and transportation issues. We also awarded Golden Cogs in three other categories to The Frogmore (Business), West Roxbury Bicycle Committee (Advocate), and our Bike to Market All-Stars (Volunteers.) Please join us in thanking them all!
- Received a video message from Rep. Ayanna Pressley, who was in D.C. to launch the new Future of Transportation Caucus, focused on transportation equity, which will bring our concerns and work to the national stage.

At Biketoberfest, we also shared highlights from our new Strategic Plan. This new version is updated to reflect the changing dynamics of our organization and the state of biking in Metro Boston, and will improve our ability to effect change going forward. We encourage you to read the entire report, including our updated mission, vision and values that we’re proud to share.
Thank you to everyone who joined us to make this Biketoberfest so special. We hope you had a great time, and left feeling inspired to stay involved in our work.
If you missed the party but want to show your support, you can still donate here. Of course, if you came to Biketoberfest and are still feeling generous you can always donate now, too!
Biketoberfest always leaves us invigorated for the work ahead. Together we’ve made incredible progress over the past year, and with your support we can accomplish even bigger things in the year to come.
P.S. As we mentioned, we’re moving offices! Soon we’ll relocate to 1419 Tremont Street. Stay tuned for details of our housewarming!
