San Francisco Bicycle Coalition

San Francisco Bicycle Coalition's mission is to transform San Francisco streets and neighborhoods into more livable and safe places by promoting the bicycle for everyday transportation.

Racing Towards a New Generation of Riders

San Francisco Bicycle Coalition

The SF Bicycle Coalition began as a modest group of environmental and neighborhood activists in 1971. Since then, it has grown into San Francisco's premiere grassroots alliance championing bicycle safety and viability in the city. The Coalition is driven almost entirely by committed volunteers, comprising one of the country's largest and most successful bicycle advocacy groups. In addition to pushing for safety-based changes such as protected bike-lanes, SF Bicycle Coalition is deeply entrenched in grassroots community programming and engagement. Through its Bike it Forward campaign, the organization reclaims, repairs, and redistributes abandoned bicycles to low-income community members lacking affordable transportation. Additionally, SF Bicycle Coalition offers free bicycle classes to youth, families, and identity-based groups such as Women Bike SF, encouraging people from diverse backgrounds in the city to connect via a shared love for riding.
