The South Florida Bike Coalition was founded in 2007 with the mission to provide resources and legal support to local grassroots bike/ped advocacy groups who endeavor to ensure alternative, sustainable, safe and adequate transportation facilities are provided throughout South Florida.
SFBC’s founders changed the face of bike/ped advocacy in Florida by giving each citizen a legal voice to demand safe bike/ped facilities in all roadway projects, which right was previously denied by state officials. SFBC has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists, as well as local media (Sun-Sentinel, Palm Beach Post and Orlando Sentinel). We are proud coalition members of Transportation for America, the Alliance for Biking and Walking, the Florida Bicycle Association and the League of American Bicyclists,
Today, the SFBC continues to reinforce and shape transportation policy in South Florida by intelligently advocating for sustainable transportion facilities that include a strong bike/ped element, educating police and policymakers, and connecting individuals who ride or simply support safer streets.
The mission of the South Florida Bike Coalition is to defend the rights of people who ride through effective advocacy, education and collaboration, thus empowering everyone to consider bicycling as a safe, comfortable option for transportation and recreation. SFBC leads and supports member-driven campaigns based on community engagement, need and feasibility.
