FCBC Mission

FCBC works to build healthy, equitable, and safe communities through advocacy, education, and collaboration that promotes bicycling for everyday transportation and recreation.


We envision a Fresno County that is a beacon of positive transformation where bicycling is safe, enjoyable, and accessible to all, and is an integral part of a sustainable multimodal transportation system.

Guiding Principles

  • We educate and encourage people to ride safely, knowledgeably, and confidently.
  • We create community and social connection through bicycling.
  • We promote equitable access to bicycling.
  • We promote bicycling for economic vitality, health, and wellbeing.

What is the Coalition?

The FCBC is a volunteer-run organization based on the support of its members. Members' time and donations help make Fresno County a safer place to live and ride.

Our activities have focused on various neighborhoods and communities in Fresno, including the Tower District, Southeast Fresno, Southwest Fresno, and Central Fresno. In these communities, the cost of car ownership and maintenance is often a burden, and encouraging people to get outside on their bikes can improve their health as well as save them money.

Fresno County is home to over a million people. A third of Fresno, CA residents live in high poverty neighborhoods, the second-highest rate in the nation, and Black, Latino, and Asian residents are more likely to live in these neighborhoods versus elsewhere in the city. Life expectancy for residents in poorer neighborhoods and those elsewhere in Fresno can vary by 20 years. Eight out of the 10 most common occupations in the city do not have high enough annual wages to afford a one-bedroom apartment at market rents. This area has great need for accessible transportation, indicated by extremely low scores on the Healthy Places Index. 

Increases in bicycling will provide any community with an affordable, sustainable and enjoyable mode of transportation, reduce traffic congestion and fossil fuel dependency, and improve access to jobs, education, and other essential services. Improving access to activities such as outdoor cycling helps promote active and healthy lifestyles, and strengthens the overall health and well-being of the community.


All of our meetings are open to the public, and we are always eager to hear about your experiences bicycling in this county. We are always open to suggestions, and we can definitely use your help!
