OUR MISSION 

Reduce car trips to school and workplaces while increasing biking joy and safety

The Bike Campaign, along with its counterpart, The Bike Garage, was founded in 2011 to help educate people about bicycling and encourage more people to ride their bikes. We work closely with city governments, county health departments, school districts, and community service groups.

The Bike Campaign and The Bike Garage are 501 c3 nonprofits.
