The League works to make biking better

We are the voice of the nation’s 57 million bicyclists, promoting and protecting your right to ride

From the halls of Congress to the streets of your community, the League is working to make your next ride safer and more convenient with fewer "Bike Lane Ends" signs and more protected places for you, your family, and your neighbors to ride.

Our advocacy efforts span the spectrum, from lobbying Congress for our fair share of funding to empowering state and local advocates with the tools to win campaigns for better bike policies in your town. Since 1880, we have been the hub of information that gets the wheels spinning in communities nationwide. At the federal, state and local level, our efforts unite the voices of people who bike.
