Connecting Our Community Through Bicycling
Goal 1: Influence Our Community Leaders
Increase membership to 1500 members by 2020. New for 2018, membership is FREE! Join today! We simply ask you consider donating to help us make bicycling safer for everyone.
Be The Voice Of The Community.
Increase our involvement in municipal infrastructure projects and planning. We asked our Clark County Commissioners to apply to become a League of American Bicyclist Bicycle Friendly Community. The BFC program provides communities with a roadmap on ways to increase safe bicycling around town. We asked and they listened. In 2017, Clark County was awarded a bronze level BFC designation.
Currently, Clark County, City of Las Vegas, and Mesquite are Bronze level, while the City of Henderson was awarded Silver in 2017.
Advocate Legislative Priorities.
Strengthen penalties for motorists who kill or injure bicyclists while breaking the law.
Increase The Number of People Who Ride.
Each year we host several social rides for beginners. We also work with our valued partners to make their social rides a success.
Goal 2: Promote Safe Biking in Southern Nevada
Continue educating the public about the 3 feet/move over law with our "More Space! Keep it Safe, Nevada!" initiative. Through generous sponsorship from Gold Member Skye Canyon and nonprofit 3 Feet For Pete Foundation, Silver members CycleVegas.com, Starved Racoon, and Nevada Department of Transportation, we have put up billboards and taxi cab ads to spread awareness of the 3 Feet Law.
Support six Elementary School bike rodeos in partnership with Clark County Safe Routes to School Program.
Work With Law Enforcement.
Encourage local law enforcement to hold at least two bike safety and 3ft law enforcement events per year.
Host a Bike Summit.
In 2017 we organized the Nevada Bicycle and Pedestrian Summit. The Summit brought together bike and walking enthusiasts, advocates, and transportation professionals from across NV to share resources and best practices related to bicycle infrastructure, funding, education, outreach, and policy.
