The Alliance For Biking And Walking

Alliance for biking and walking

The aim of the Alliance for Biking and Walking is to create, strengthen, and unite state and local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations throughout North America. Formed following a grassroots meeting between bicycle advocacy leaders in 1996, the Alliance has grown into a coalition of over two hundred groups throughout the country. Focusing on skill-sharing and mutual support, the Alliance holds retreats and training sessions, and also influences policy makers at state and local level. For example, it co-runs the Open Streets Projects, the initiative that shares best practices between cities that wish to temporarily close their centres to motorised traffic.
