Improving Bicycling and Walking in Fitchburg

Bike Fitchburg is Bringing Cycling Without Age to Fitchburg!

The Right to Wind in your hair! We all know the feeling of freedom biking brings and how it helps us both mentally and physically! To be outside in nature and feeling the wind on our faces! As we age, we cannot always experience this. The Cycling without Age program gets those that can no longer ride on their own, out on a special bike called a trishaw. Volunteer pilots ride in back and those who cannot ride on their own sit in front. It's a proven program. We need your help to bring it to Fitchburg. Read more about it here.

If you want to help, please donate to our GoFundme page. Thank You!

Everyone Biking at Night Should have a Light!

Have you ever spotted someone biking at night without lights and thought "I wish I could just give them a set?" So have we! That's why we have become involved in the Bright Light program. We have successfully asked people to donate money to purchase some of these lights and are in the process of getting them into the right hands. If you want to know more, contact Mark Wilkerson at
