Ride a Bike

Biking is a healthy, accessible and affordable mode of transportation. It offers a reduced environmental footprint with no fuel expenses or parking fees, low maintenance costs, and provides a cardiovascular workout.

With thousands of miles of bicycle routes and increasing focus on improving bicycling safety and access in Pennsylvania, there are lots of ways that you can ride your bike. Check out the state’s designated
