About Bike/Walk Central Florida  

Bike/Walk Central Florida was born out of a belief that few people get into their cars, ride their bikes, or walk across the street with the intention of colliding. However, Central Florida has a history of designing roads for speed and convenience rather than walking or biking; we can no longer accept that biking, and walking injuries are inevitable. We believe that it is our duty to protect the most vulnerable road users and make walking and biking in Central Florida the norm.   

 Bike/Walk Central Florida educates and advocates to make communities more walkable, bikeable, and rollable. We strive towards a connected and equitable transportation system that is safe and comfortable for all. BWCF manages the Best Foot Forward for Pedestrian Safety Program and the Healthy West Orange Trails Connection on behalf of our partners. The organization also hosts events such as Bike 5 Cities, focusing on comfortable routes for all road users, and Bike/Walk Kids, educating our youth on safe cycling and walking habits.
