One morning over coffee, we shared a vision that St. Petersburg can be a sustainable city where walking and cycling is safe and viable for everyone. So here we are –– working passionately to help make that happen.

Our organization is a work in progress but one of many components that remains constant is our dedication to include as many voices as possible as we help guide alternative transportation initiatives city-wide.

In other words... it's a group effort and we want to hear from you!
