Vision Statement

Everyday cycling in Edmonton is safe, widespread, and accessible to people of all comfort levels.

Mission Statement

EBC is a non-profit society dedicated to making everyday cycling in Edmonton safer and more widespread by providing bicycle services, education, and civic representation. We promote the bicycle as a healthy, economical, and ecologically sound mode of transportation.

Objectives (Purpose)

On October 3, 2010, the Annual General Meeting of the Society voted by Special Resolution, receiving more than 75% support, to strike the existing objects and replace them with the following:

  1. To provide, administer and maintain a multi-use facility for Edmonton and area dedicated to providing cost-effective, do-it-yourself bike repair facilities and access to an environmentally sustainable, economical means of transportation,
  2. To educate the public by providing courses, seminars and workshops about bike mechanics and/or safe and effective riding,
  3. To extend services to marginalized members of the community as well as new-comers,
  4. To facilitate communication between cyclists and governments or others to improve bicycle infrastructure and policy, and
  5. To assist the Edmonton community at large in the promotion, encouragement and understanding of cycling culture.
