Looking for Bike Champions – a paid position!

BWT is looking for a few great ambassadors for biking to kick-start the first-ever Ithaca Bike Champions program. Bike Champions will work directly with their network of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, classmates, etc. to encourage biking as a safe and convenient way to move around.  Through one-on-one conversations and organizing activities, Bike Champions will demystify Ithaca's new bikeshare system, help understand biking conditions, and increase the voice of people in decision-making about transportation in and around Ithaca. $20/hr for 3-5 hrs/week for 20 weeks. Learn more and apply now, application deadline extended to Thursday, March 8th, 2018.

Bikeshare is on its way...

You may have spied a few brightly colored bikeshare bikes on the streets of Ithaca this past month. Bike Walk Tompkins folks have been taking a few different companies' bikes for test rides, as we look for the best bikeshare fit for Ithaca. We expect to see a good sized fleet of bikeshare bikes roll out this spring! Find out more at the Streets Alive! Film Festival on March 22.

Part of a Bigger Movement

Bike Walk Tompkins is part of a growing movement in and around Ithaca to make sure biking and walking are treated as valid forms of transportation. These are not new ideas, and people have been working for decades to make it so. We’d like to give a special acknowledgement to all the members through the years of the City of Ithaca’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Council (BPAC), in existence since 1990 to December 2017. Thank you all for your service.

We look forward to working with the City's new Mobility, Accessibility & Transportation Commission to make biking and walking safe and comfortable for all ages and abilities in Ithaca.
