Sign up for the Bikepool matching service
Bikepool [baik-pool] – noun, verb – A group of two or more people who bike to work or school together. Riding with others is a good option. It can be a very welcoming opportunity for new and/or inexperienced riders, and it creates a larger road presence for all riders.
Find an existing BikePool on the BikePGH Message Board or create your own!
Bikepools often begin informally, but what a lot of people don’t know is that CommuteINFO offers a bikepool matching service that helps people connect with an ongoing bikepool in their neighborhood. Program participants receive benefits like Emergency Ride Home and are included in a data base that counts the groups. The more frequently bike commuters are counted the more we count when decision makers decide how public funds are spent for road improvements.
