“Bike Pittsburgh’s barter membership program is a fantastic way to become involved in local bike advocacy. Not only do you become a card carrying member and show your support for cycling in Pittsburgh, but you also get to contribute in the way that works best for you. I highly recommend it!” – Bike Pittsburgh Member Rebecca Susman, student and activist

“The barter membership program makes a lot of sense for those who are more likely to give time than money, and it’s Bike Pittsburgh’s way of letting people know that volunteering is just as valued as cash. There are many ways to volunteer – many people might already be doing things to promote biking in the city, and that can count towards a membership.

Being a member feels good after earning it with your time. It’s a nice ‘thank-you’ from Bike-PGH.” – Bike Pittsburgh Member Andrew Moore, writer and organizer of the Northside Ride
