The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia (BCGP) and the Cadence Cycling Foundation (CCF) have merged to create Pennsylvania and the Greater Philadelphia region’s largest bicycling-focused nonprofit effective immediately.

Both organizations have a strong presence in the city and the merger is designed to create financial stability and a wider reach in the region.

“These are two effective and stable organizations who opted to combine forces because we saw efficiencies and complimentary skill-sets which will strengthen our work in a way and at a speed we couldn’t achieve separately,” said Bicycle Coalition Executive Director Alex Doty in a press release.

The new organization has kept the name of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, though CCF initiatives will continue.

Former CCF Executive Director Ryan Oelkers is now the director of youth education and will oversee both CCF programs and Safe Routes Philly, an educational program created by BCGP in 2010 that brought pedestrian and bicycle safety lessons to more than 60,000 elementary school students. 

For now, the BCGP site will serve as the new organization’s main web presence until a combined site is launched by the year’s end.
