TBA is a non-profit educational, advocacy and safety organization for bicyclists of all types. We are a public purpose, charitable organization under IRS 501c3. Donations to TBA are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Throughout the year TBA sponsors many rides, overnight touring trips, traffic skills classes and other events to educate and promote safe travel by bicycle.
We advocate for better bicycling throughout the Tidewater, Virginia area by working to protect cyclist's rights and maintain balanced public policy toward cycling. We seek safe, well designed road and bike facilities and equitable law enforcement.
Please join us for a ride or one of our many other activities that help to further bicycling. See you on the road!
