A Thousand Words, Volume 17

At Thousand, we're more than a helmet company—we're also humans who believe that by empowering people to safely get around their cities on a bike, board, or scooter, we build closer communities, travel more sustainably, and lead healthier lives.
That's why this month, we’re excited to highlight PeopleForBikes, a national bicycle advocacy organization that focuses on infrastructure, policy, and participation to become the best place to ride a bike in the world.

 The Great Bike Infrastructure Project is their latest initiative to build a more liveable future through thousands of bike projects across the country.

By activating community support and providing local leaders with the tools to build protected bike lanes, off-street trails, pump tracks, bike parks, and more, PeopleForBikes is ensuring Americans of all ages and abilities can experience the joy and safety of riding a bike wherever they live.

Explore the program yourself to find and support a project near you. Together, we can make biking better for everyone.
