Story

The boards of PeopleForBikes and the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association came together in late June of 2019 to ratify the merger and celebrate with a bike ride around Boulder.
In the summer of 2019, PeopleForBikes merged with the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association to build a stronger unified voice for biking across the country. The merger streamlines and strenghthens our industry’s legislative, legal and research efforts. Our industry now speaks to government leaders at all levels with a more powerful, unified voice that fully represents our multi-faceted business.
Rolling out from Galvanize on our E-Bikes. We had a ton of different brands of e-bikes represented, showcasing the depth and breadth of our industyr.
On June 17, the boards of the two organizations met to finalize the merger and celebrated with a group e-bike ride through beautiful Boulder Colorado. The rainy clouds parted and sun shone on all of us as we cruised to happy hour and dinner as a group. 
Even after the rain let up, we had to plow through puddles to earn our beers!
The Boulder Creek Path offered beautiful, scenic riding.
Adam Micklin and Tim Blumenthal welcome all the board members.
We tracked our progress using Ride Spot, and everyone's reward for finishing the route was a tasty beverage of their choice at the end of the road.
