BICYCLE ADVOCACY OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS
WHO WE ARE
Bicycle Advocacy of Central Arkansas is a 501c3 nonprofit that advocates for the rapidly growing cycling community in the Little Rock metro area and surrounding Central Arkansas. We are all from different backgrounds, and have different reasons for riding, but our common passion to make cycling safer and more accessible is what ties us together.

WHAT WE DO
Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to provide advocacy, education and encouragement to the Central Arkansas cycling community and to create an environment where anybody can ride anywhere safely and easily.
Our top priority is advocating for cyclists. Its so important to us it's in our name. BACA advocates at the local, state and even national level and acts as a voice for the cycling community to those who need to hear it. Have an issue or a concern but don't know how to get the message to the right person? BACA works to take cyclists' concerns to the people who will make the change.
Education is a key component of our mission, whether it is teaching kids to ride safely, adults how to repair a bike or drivers about safety when encountering cyclists, BACA is dedicated to educating Arkansans about safely biking in the Natural State.
Central Arkansas is fortunate to have a rapidly growing cycling community. Another one of our goals is to encourage more people to hop on a bike and go for a ride! While most people feel comfortable riding on the Arkansas River Trail though, we also encourage people to try riding their bikes as a mode of transportation. Leave the car at home every now and then and ride your bike to the corner store, or to work. Encouraging people to ride their bikes instead of taking the car is another important issue that can help lead to a better cycling environment for everyone.
