Bikes Belong Coalition
Bikes Belong works to put more people on bicycles more often. From helping create safe places to ride to promoting bicycling, we carefully select projects and partnerships that have the capacity to make a difference.
International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA)
The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) creates, enhances and protects great trail experiences for mountain bikers worldwide.
The organization was founded in 1988 by a group of California mountain bike clubs concerned about the closure of trails to cyclists. These pioneering clubs believed that mountain biker-education programs and innovative trail management solutions should be developed and promoted. While this first wave of threatened trail access was concentrated in California, IMBA's pioneers saw that crowded trails and trail-user conflict were fast becoming worldwide recreation issues. This is why they chose "International Mountain Bicycling Association" as the organization's name.
League of American Bicyclists
Advocating for bicyclists is one of the most important goals of the League, and working in conjunction with America Bikes, we have made some impressive achievements. The best way to get involved is to work with your local officials so they understand the importance of bicycling, and join the League.
National Bicycle Dealer Associations (NBDA)
In partnership with the League of American Bicyclists, the new Bicycling 123 rider education program is designed to support NBDA member dealers as they encourage cycle safety within their community. The League provides the materials and training for bicycle store owners and employees to teach safe riding to their customers in short and entertaining classes.
