About Us

Our mission is to enable more people to bicycle, creating safer, healthier and more prosperous communities for all.

Our vision is of millions of people riding bikes every day in California. Networks of safe streets and paths conveniently connect every destination. People of all ages and abilities enjoy the  health and happiness that comes from bicycling. Our local communities are stronger economically thanks to less automobile dependence. Traffic-related injuries are less common and less severe, and fatalities are rare. California is a national model for sustainable transportation.

Our goal is to double the amount of bicycling in the Golden State by 2017 and triple it by 2020.

And we have chosen smart strategies to get there. Read about it in our 2013-2017 Strategic Plan.

Our Board of Directors and staff and tens of thousands of bicycle advocates affiliated with us through their local organizations all work together to carry out our strategy.

Founded in 1994, CalBike has a strong history of accomplishments. In 1998, we founded our sister organization, the California Bicycle Coalition Education Fund.

Most of our legal documents are available for public inspection here, or upon request.

Here’s a beautiful one page leaflet about the good work of the California Bicycle Coalition.
