1. Promoting events for all skill levels and age groups
2. Providing education on bicycle issues, safe bicycling, rules of the road, and emergency bicycle repairs.
3. Advocating on behalf of bicycling government actions, private developments and community events
4. Promoting full knowledge and equal enforcement of the rules of the road as they apply to bicycles, pedestrians, and automobiles.
5. Identifying and promoting needed bicycle facilities, routes, lanes and elimination of dangerous areas.
