How We Impact the Community
Riding a bicycle — a simple activity that benefits our health and the environment and brings joy—is out of reach for too many who are concerned about their safety. But safer streets for biking are attainable, and we are the only local organization that is dedicated entirely to making this future a reality.
We educate: Through school-based bike rodeos and bilingual Family Biking Workshops, we teach over 1,000 youth and parents traffic safety and bike-handling skills with free, on-bike lessons that build confidence.
We encourage: We coordinate Bike to Work & School Day and Walk & Roll to School Day, engaging over 3,000 youth and adults throughout Napa County in going by bike. We also provide bike helmets and lights to youth in-need.
We advocate: We work closely with elected officials, public agencies, and local residents to make our transportation network safer for bicyclists, pedestrians, and other active transportation users.
