Why Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is advocating for protected bike lanes

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.


“The average bicyclist really looks like the average Philadelphian.”

That, according to Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s communications manager, Randy LoBasso, means that the people you see whipping down the Pine Street bike lane in the morning span neighborhoods of origin, ethnicities and incomes. Collectively, they account for the 2.2 percent of Philadelphians who bike to work or school — the most of any major American city.

Last year, LoBasso said, the city put down 17 miles of new bike lanes — but its goal is 40 per year, as well as 30 miles of protected bike lanes by the end of Mayor Jim Kenney’s tenure.

Watch LoBasso’s “Around the Corner” interview to learn about how and why BCGP plans to make that happen.
