Bicis del Pueblo is coordinated by PODER to develop bicycling skills and environmental justice awareness of low-income communities of color.
Participants from southeast SF neighborhoods are supported through cooperatively run activities focused on learning, teaching and sharing bicycle education and skills – often using city-owned impounded broken bikes as raw material. BDP encourages low-income families, youth and communities of color to incorporate bicycling in everyday activities that strengthens public health, deepens community resiliency, and reduces toxic pollution. They are outspoken advocates on mobility innovations like Lyft’s plan to drop cash from bike-share.
A focused approach to engage specific disadvantaged communities to build a movement, skills and perspective on health, environmental and transportation justice.
