About the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA)
Our aim is to promote cycling for both transport and recreation. We:
- work with local councils and government authorities to provide better facilities for cyclists.
- lobby for more bicycle-friendly cities and towns, and for improved standards of education and behaviour for all road users.
- encourage the formation of Bicycle User Groups (BUGs) to promote cycling at the local level.
- run an active blog on this site for your input and entertainment.
As a non-profit organisation we rely on our valued volunteer members.
