Our Mission for Florida bicycling is to network and share best practices, to educate and advocate and to build awareness as a unified voice.
Our Vision for Florida is to be a state where bicycling is safe, respected and encouraged as a means of transportation and recreation.
- To educate bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists about safely sharing roadways and paths
- To be a powerful, influential organization that protects and advances the interests of bicyclists
- To be a voice for the needs of bicyclists
- To encourage the creation of great on-road and off-road places to ride
- To provide a statewide communications network for bicyclists
- To encourage more people to bicycle more often
FBA is funded by membership dues, donations, advertising revenue in the quarterly Messenger newsletter, corporate sponsorships, grants and Share the Road specialty license plate proceeds. Funds are used to promote education and advocacy programs and to encourage bicycling as a life long activity.
