The Alabama Bicycle Coalition (AlaBike) is a statewide, grassroots not-for-profit 501(c)(3) cycling advocacy organization whose mission is to promote cycling safety, education, and access. AlaBike works with state and local officials to preserve, improve, create and institutionalize bicycle-friendly roads and policies throughout Alabama. Bicycle-friendly cities, towns, counties and regions provide a healthy environment for its citizens and project an attractive image to visitors and prospective residents. The investment in a high-quality, user-friendly road network is returned many times in improved quality of life and property values. AlaBike seeks support to develop programs to promote this vision.
