Description

Established in 2009 as The New Jersey Bicycle Coalition, the New Jersey Bike & Walk Coalition is the only state-wide advocacy organization for bicyclists and pedestrians. Our 2010 shift in focus to represent both bicyclists and walkers recognized that we all share common challenges and opportunities. Both groups face an increasing threat from distracted drivers and many of our streets are inadequately designed for biking and walking. There is a strong need for more laws requiring motorists to give vulnerable road users (anyone using the road who is not in a motorized vehicle) a margin of safety when passing them on the road.

Our members include bicyclists and walkers from Ringwood to Cape May. We partner with clubs, advocacy groups, and local, regional, and state agencies. We are supported by a growing list of sponsors who share our goals. We are recognized by both the League of American Bicyclists and the Alliance for Biking & Walking as the state bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organization for New Jersey.
