Only 15% of kids walk or bike to school, down from 50% a generation ago. Roads need to be better for bikes. Decision makers need to do more to make bike riding safe and convenient.


Our Programs seek to change behavior by giving people the tools they need to ride a bike: education, encouragement, and community. Our Advocacy Initiatives aim to improve the environment for cyclists by affecting policy; in other words, we get the attention of the folks in government who can redirect funds and prioritize the kind of projects that make it easier to get around by bike.

Long-Term Impact

We envision a community that values, includes, and encourages bicycling for all purposes for all people.


Our advocacy campaigns bring better biking to SV
Active kids are healthy kids!
We're motivated to create a better Silicon Valley
