When you join Bikes Belong you’re helping to strengthen bicycling in America. With every bike business that joins or renews their membership, we have a stronger ability to continue to help bicycling become safer, more convenient, and more appealing so that more people will ride bikes more often.
Strength in Numbers and Unity
Bikes Belong formed in 1999 when U.S. bicycle companies recognized an exceptional opportunity to work together to maximize bike funding in TEA-21—the upcoming multi-year federal transportation bill. Our initial goal was to ensure funding for great, new bicycle facilities that would increase bike riding, boost public health and happiness, and strengthen the bike business.
Since then, we’ve successfully harnessed the collective power of the U.S. bicycle industry to accomplish more than bike companies could by working independently. We’ve steadily expanded our efforts, but we remain focused on creating safe places to ride so more people will bike, and bike more.
