Strategic Plan

THE BICYCLE COALITION OF MAINE (BCM) works to make Maine a better place to bike and walk. Founded by a small group of cyclists in 1992, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine has grown into one of the most effective bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups in the country. We attribute our success to the dedication of our members, board, staff, and partner businesses and organizations.

The BCM’s five-year strategic plan will guide our efforts to elevate Maine’s reputation as a bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly state, educate people of all ages on how to safely bike and walk, and advance Complete Streets principles that ensure roads are designed and safe for all users—bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists.

We at the Coalition envision a future where Maine’s roads, public ways, and trails are safe, accessible, and well-used by everyone—resulting in cleaner travel options, improved health, and stronger economic benefits for Maine communities.

In 2022, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine celebrated its 30th anniversary. We hope you will continue to help us keep the Coalition’s mission and vision alive and on track for at least another 30 years!
