Yay Bikes! influences the conditions that help people safely and comfortably ride bicycles for transportation in two primary ways. We teach people how to ride a bicycle for transportation. A person’s ability to ride more places, more often stems from on-road bicycle education that supports and challenges them as they encounter real-world traffic scenarios. We help professionals understand how they can improve conditions. An environment that supports those who ride for transportation stems from professionals with first-hand experience riding roads who have been empowered and supported by advocates to initiate thoughtful change.

Not sure if you are ready to bike your full commute route?

Bike to a COTA stop along your commute if you only want to bike part of the way! Click here for more information on how to use a COTA bus bike rack.
