Bike Walk Connecticut is your voice for a bikeable, walkable Connecticut.
Bike Walk Connecticut is a member-supported non-profit organization making cycling and walking safe, feasible and attractive for a healthier, cleaner Connecticut.
Bike Walk Connecticut was formed in 2005 as the Central Connecticut Bicycle Alliance (CCBA), with a mission to advocate for bike-friendly facilities and policies in central Connecticut to benefit all bicyclists, both recreational riders and commuters.
The group's first activity was to take over the Hartford Bike to work program that had been previously managed by an association of agencies and individuals and had operated since 2000.
CCBA received 501(C)(3) status in January 2006. In April 2010, CCBA broadened its mission to include walking issues, adopted a statewide focus, and changed its name to Bike Walk Connecticut.
Bike Walk Connecticut is the only organization working statewide to make Connecticut bike- and pedestrian-friendly.
We work locally to increase grassroots efforts to make communities better places to bike and walk; at the state legislature to advance laws that protect the rights of cyclists and walkers, and at the DOT to make sure that policies and engineering practices that will improve conditions for cyclists are implemented. We are also active at the federal level, working cooperatively with national organizations to ensure continued funding for biking and walking projects.

Our priorities for 2012-2013 include:
