Mission and Vision

Mission

The Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota engages people, provides education, and advocates for biking and walking.


Vision

We envision a Minnesota where every person everywhere can easily walk, bike, and roll as ways to move in daily life.

We See a Future Where…

All people experience safety: traffic safety, freedom from community violence, enforcement strategies that are equitable and support walking, biking, and rolling.

The culture of getting around values walking, bicycling, rolling, and riding transit by default and instead of defaulting to cars.

People of color, especially Black and Indigenous communities, have access to vital daily movement.

Engaged, diverse voices advocate for better bike and walk policies and infrastructure in their communities.

Rural, urban, and suburban communities thrive due to connected routes that support all ages and abilities.

Biking and walking are a critical climate mitigation strategy to sustain a healthy planet and community.
