Why you should #GoByBike
That thing hanging in your garage? It’s not just a bike, it’s an agent of change.
The global climate crisis will not be solved by a single person, agency, or master stroke of genius. This problem belongs to every one of us. And so does its solution.
As a brand and as humans, we have a responsibility today to confront our world’s most imminent threat together by changing our lives and our business for the greater good.
So, we’re throwing a leg over the frame and prepping for a ride we have no intention of cutting short. And we’re inviting you to join us.
Riding is climate action
Studies show that choosing lower-impact transportation options regularly is an adjustment we all need to make. But the way we see it, that’s like someone saying, “Here’s a party you have to go to!” Riding your bike isn’t a chore, it’s a gift to yourself and your planet. And if you’re doing it right, there’s a whole lot of fun to be had when you #GoByBike.
Collective action makes a world of difference, and what you do today matters for tomorrow.
Choose your bike for one or more trips each week and tag a photo of your ride with #GoByBike for the health of our people and planet.
