Help the Philadelphia Bicycle Coalition win $100,000! 

When Bike Law Pennsylvania attorney Joe Piscitello received a call from the Philadelphia Bicycle Coalition asking for his help to “get out the vote”for a contest where they stand to win $100,000, he jumped into action.  Not only did his Bike Law Firm get the word out, but so did regional bike shops, organizations and community groups.  Within a day, the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia cycling community pushed the message out to thousands of cyclists via social media.   According to Attorney Piscitello, he believes the rapid response from the cycling community “…reflects the solidarity and commitment to promote safer infrastructure, laws and culture in our region. The Bike Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is not merely a non-profit organization;  they are our advocates and collaborators working tirelessly to improve cycling and pedestrian safety across the state.”

Vision Zero Bicycle Advocacy

The Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia is one of three non-profits in the running for a $100K donation from “NRG Gives” a charitable-giving program sponsored by PositiveNRG.

 In order for our Bike Coalition to winwe need to vote for them, once a day and every day from April 24 (Wednesday) through to April 29 (Monday).

It is simple and will benefit our cycling community in the state of Pennsylvania. Anyone in any state can vote in this contest.

3-foot passing close call
Charlie Thomas Jan 11, 2021

It happens all the time: Someone emails me video footage, clearly showing they were biking along when a car buzzes past, coming within inches of a horrible crash — and there’s nothing I can do about it because we don’t have the laws in place to do something to help. Luckily, that might be about […]

I pictured her in my mind with her bike, wearing her signature skirts, and mud on her sandals. Always on the go, the newly minted Metro […]
