Our mission and vision

At the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, we're your voice for better biking! Our mission is to create a healthier, more livable Atlanta by making it safer, easier, and more attractive to bicycle for fun, fitness, and transportation. Founded in 1991, our membership-based nonprofit advocates for a safe and connected network of bikeways and  better conditions for bicycling, educates bicyclists and drivers on safety, provides resources to overcome barriers to biking, promotes the bicycle as a viable transportation solution and form of recreation and exercise, and organizes community-building events like Atlanta Streets Alive. 

Bicycling helps everyone, not just those who ride bicycles, by creating a higher overall quality of life through improved public health, cleaner air, less congestion, and stronger communities.

We advocate for better conditions for bicycling, educate bicyclists and drivers alike to share the road, provide resources for overcoming barriers to biking increase confidence while biking, and promote the bicycle as a viable transportation solution and community-building form of recreation and exercise.

As the Atlanta region continues to grow, challenges in the areas of transportation, air quality, public health, and mobility accumulate. If we are to maintain the quality of life instrumental in attracting growth to our city and region, we must address these issues. What's more, the bicycle industry and bicycle facilities such as lanes and paths add value to the local economy by providing business opportunities and enhancing economic development. Bicycling is a simple solution to vexing problems - we want to make it accessible and attractive to everyone!
