Pedaling for Safety Campaign
Pedaling for Safety's mission is to promote safety for people who bicycle along Florida's First Coast. Our vision is zero fatalities or serious injuries from bicycling in our region.
North Florida Bicycle Club has a long tradition of promoting cycling safety. In 2016 Pedaling for Safety was incorporated in the State of Florida as a non-profit (Articles of Incorporation) and approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation (IRS determination letter).
We have funded billboards at multiple sites along the First Coast and radio spots.
Safety Campaign Billboards and Banner
We have displayed our safety message on 25 Jacksonville Transportation Authority buses and distributed car door magnets and bumper stickers promoting our campaign.
Our Ride Bright at Night initiative began in February 2015 with the placement of posters on bus shelters, targeting corridors identified by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) with high citation rates for bicyclists riding without lights. JSO has distributed 1000 set of lights to patrol officers to hand out to cyclists riding at night without lights in lieu of citations. We have placed posters at local bike shops and on public bulletin boards at receptive businesses. We are continuing our outreach to community shelters and surrounding counties.
The North Florida Bicycle club has dedicated a significant percentage of the profits from the Tour de Forts Classic and Endless Summer Watermelon Ride to the Pedaling for Safety Campaign.
