Our Mission

To make Ithaca and Tompkins County a community where walking and biking
are safe and convenient for people of all ages and abilities.

wHAT wE dO

We advocate for biking and walking improvements, such as with our Blueprint for Better Bicycling work, and promote events & organizations that get people walking and biking.

Our Ithaca Bike Champions organize dozens of community outreach events in the community, and our instructors run Bike Skills Classes for adults who want to learn to ride a bike.

Learn more about Ithaca's bikeshare system Lime, a fun, convenient, and affordable way to move around town. Also, check out our small but growing adaptive bike/trike library.

Now in its eighth year, Streets Alive! Ithaca is when Ithacans walk, bike, roll, play, and dance on streets that are closed to cars and open to people. Volunteer at the next one, or host an activity.
