About the Texas Bicycle

of cycling in Texas. The Texas Bicycle Coalition (TBC)
is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization dedicated to
advancing bicycle access, safety and education in Texas.
in 1990 to fight bicycle bans on Texas roads, the Texas
Bicycle Coalition has become an internationally recognized
voice for bicyclists of all types. Whether you ride a road
or mountain bike, ride for fun, racing or transportation,
are as fit as Lance Armstrong or need your bike for mobility,
TBC is your organization.
in Austin, and serving cyclists across the state, TBC is
in continual contact with members of the Legislature, Texas
Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Texas Department of
Public Safety (DPS), and local governments.
