By Bike

Many people in Cambridge choose to use a bicycle to get around. Some do it for convenience, others for exercise, and yet others because it is economical. More and more people in Cambridge - and throughout the United States - are traveling by bike. The City promotes bicycling as an environmentally friendly form of travel - it is a key element of the official plan for reducing air pollution and addressing climate change. Every person who is on a bike takes up less room on the street, reduces congestion, decreases parking demand, and decreases air pollution. Bicycling also supports both individual and public health goals of promoting healthy exercise. It is important that our roads not only accommodate people who bicycle but invite them to do so - whether they are eight years old or 80 years old.

In order to support and promote bicycling, the City is working to further enhance the bicycle facility network, add bicycle parking throughout the City, promote bicycling through rides and events, contribute to bicycle training in schools and elsewhere for both children and adults, and add bike share as an option for residents, visitors, and workers.
