The group is always working to make the Northside a place that has safe streets for everyone. And they are always welcoming new members!

As one of the longest running neighborhood bike/ped advocacy committees, Walk Ride Northside is a group of concerned residents and business owners who advocate for improved infrastructure and continued safety; encourage and promote riding & walking; and support accessibility for all bicyclists and pedestrians.

They meet on the first Tuesday of the month at Penn Brewery from 6-7pm. You can email them for more information and to join their email list.


Don’t live on the Northside but want to become an bike/ped advocate? There are over 20 neighborhood bike/ped committees across the City and surrounding municipalities.

You can find a complete list of them here. You can always start your own committee too! Email for more information.
