The moniker “Occupy Your Bike” is a play on the label of the broader Occupy Movement, and is meant to invoke the sense of collective change in service to a better society and a better world. While the Occupy Movement employs various social and politics tactics, ours is quite simple: get on a bike in your ‘hood. Join a friend or two. Have some fun. And see what happens.

Must we really go into the reasons to OYB? Ok, we’ll humor you:

1. It’s fun. The single easiest reason to delve into any new activity.

2. It makes your body purr. Phil Jones, one OYBer, dropped thirty pounds during his first year of riding. Need we say more?

3. You're always learning. Our group is multigenerational, knowledgeable, unintimidating, and eager to show you how to make riding a pleasurable experience you’ll want to keep up from day to day.

4. It’s challenging. You’ll grow in ways you don’t expect: as a cyclist or rider, as a person, as someone who cares about our earth and about the community we live in.

5. It’s informal and low-pressure. We’re not an organization in any sense, but rather, a loose network of individuals who love biking and want to help others get riding. Like the Occupy movement itself, we’re a self-organized and decentralized effort, and therefore forward-focused and light-footed.
