The Albany Bicycle Coalition advocates for bicycling in the Capital Region of NY State.

    Bicycling . . .

  • is the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly form of transportation yet devised;
  • promotes health and fitness;
  • provides family-friendly recreational opportunities, and fosters tourism;
  • is a cost-effective means of transportation for persons with limited income.
    We advocate for:

  • more and better bicycle infrastructure (bike lanes, multi-use paths, bike racks, signage);
  • complete streets for all users (bicyclists, pedestrians, and the disabled, in addition to motor vehicles);
  • legislation to improve safety and legal rights for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Albany Bicycle Coalition was founded in 2004, and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
