Our Paths to Success

Education: A Safe Path

Advocacy: An Easy Path

Community Engagement:
A Fun Path

We envision a world

where walking and biking are easy, safe, and fun for people of all backgrounds and abilities. Core to this vision is the goal of zero lives lost and no serious injuries on roads, our largest public spaces. This kind of mobility has the power to help rural, suburban, and urban communities thrive.

Active mobility also leads to increased positive health outcomes and increased positive environmental outcomes, which are goals Minnesota leaders already share with us. This shared vision will ensure that walking and biking are a frequent means of mobility within all communities.

As a member of the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, you will help in supporting our efforts to:

  • Advocate for walk & bike friendly laws, policies, projects, and programs.
  • Educate motorists and others using a national curriculum and awareness campaign focused on motorists.
  • Encourage biking & walking through events and promotions.
  • Help businesses and communities to be more walk & bike friendly.
