Bike Jax is bike culture blogged

Our mission is to establish Jacksonville as a city that is increasingly safe, accessible, and friendly to bicycle transportation.

Jacksonville is a diverse and widely varied land mass located on one of the most beautiful rivers in the world and a coastline with miles of beaches. We intend on making sure cyclists are able to easily access these amenities as well as neighborhoods by way of safe, cheap, clean and quiet transportation alternatives, including: clean fuel buses, light rail, pedestrian walkways and bike routes and lanes.

Jacksonville has some of the finest year round weather in this country and should be a leader in presenting the bicycle as an alternative source of transportation.

Our Goals:

*Pursue the implementation of a City Bike Plan

*Promote Jacksonville as a bicycling community

*Represent the interests of bicyclists

*Endorse the bicycle as a viable, economical, and desirable mode of transportation

*Educate bicyclists and motorists on road safety

*Assist local agencies in establishing bike-friendly policies for Jacksonville

*Strengthen ties amongst community Development Corporations, businesses, and the bicycling community

*Contribute to Jacksonvilles' health and environment
