Mission & Vision

Mission: Bicycling in Greensboro (BIG) exists to help transform the greater Greensboro area into a more bicycling-friendly community.

Vision: BIG is committed to connecting the Greensboro community via networks of bikeways and complete streets where riding a bicycle is safe for all. We promote bicycling as a form of sustainable transportation and recreation by advocating for bicycling infrastructure, providing bicycles and bicycling safety instruction to those in need, and participating in community events.
