Our mission and vision
At the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, we're your voice for better biking!
To create a healthier, more sustainable Atlanta by making it safer, easier, and more attractive to bicycle for fun, fitness, and transportation.
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!
