Bike East Bay promotes healthy, sustainable communities by making bicycling safe, fun and accessible.
Bike East Bay was founded in 1972 (as the East Bay Bicycle Coalition) a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation. Today Bike East Bay safeguards the interest of bicyclists in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Bike East Bay works with 33 cities, both counties, Caltrans, and other government agencies to improve conditions for cyclists. Membership benefits include the newsletter rideOn, monthly meeting programs, shop discounts, and the opportunity to participate in "hands-on" efforts to improve cycling conditions. We count over 4,00 paid members, plus several thousand members of 19 affiliated clubs and organizations that are part of the coalition.
