Indego Community Ambassadors help keep Indego and the communities it serves connected. Working closely with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, these Ambassadors were busy this season organizing bicycle safety classes, group rides, and other events that focus on introducing biking to their communities!
As the Better Bike Share Partnership team reflects on this past season, we asked two of our ambassadors to share their thoughts on the work they’ve done with Indego within their community in addition to highlights of the 2019 Indego Community Ambassador season.
The weather may be getting colder, but it’s never too late in the season to start riding! That’s the kind of eager spirit that women from SheJumps brought to a brisk November bike ride.
SheJumps is an organization that works to help women foster confidence, leadership, and connection to nature through outdoor activities. Local organizer, Kelsey Rode, thought a bike ride on Indego bikes would be a great way to do just that!
In June of 2018, Indego added three new stations to the Navy Yard with the hopes of helping Philadelphians access this iconic and sometimes overlooked community. If you have not yet made the trip down to the Navy Yard, keep reading to learn Indego’s top 4 reasons to bike there!
Cycle September is back! This month-long challenge is one of theLove to Ride Challenges and is brought to you locally by The Clean Air Council. Individuals and their workplaces compete worldwide to raise the profile of cycling and help get more people on bikes. All you have to do is sign up and log your bike rides for the chance to win prizes! We sat down with previous Love to Ride prize winner, Lauren, to learn more about how she climbed her way to the top.
On August 3rd, the Indego Community Ambassadors came together for an early morning group ride to the 4th annual Philly Free Streets celebration. The Ambassadors promoted the group ride in their communities during the weeks leading up to Philly Free Streets in the hopes of connecting people to this amazing event!
Each month, The Better Bike Share Partnership (BBSP) hosts a themed group ride that is intended to familiarize Philadelphians with Indego and introduce folks to different resources all over the city. Last month, riders were invited to join us at the Smith Memorial Arch in Fairmount Park for a picnic and live entertainment!
