Bike culture is an indicator of how normal it is to ride a bike and to see others on their bikes. You can see Provincetown’s culture of everyday bicycling reflected in its music, art, and history.
We’ve compiled lots of details on our year-round ridership, peak bike counts in the summer, crash statistics, and our low-stress bike network.
Town is committed to bicycling through planning, designing, and funding new bicycle projects. Many policies are already in place to support these initiatives.
The town’s Bicycle Committee and Police Department host and participate in events to engage with residents and visitors, have active online presences, and provide free safety gear and information.
