Your Orange County Bicycle Organization


The Orange County Bicycle Coalition encourages safe bicycling through advocacy, education and recommended infrastructure improvements to streets and paths by state and local governments. Unlike bicycle clubs, we don’t organize weekly rides. However, we do love to ride, and we work for all Orange County bicyclists by providing feedback and suggestions to government agencies seeking funds for bicycle projects. We also offer letters of endorsement for projects that meet our standards.

The Orange County Bicycle Coalition, also known as OCBC and OC Bike, was founded in 1991 and has worked tirelessly since then to improve bicycle safety in Orange County, California. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donations are 100% tax deductible.

City of Fullerton Survey

The City of Fullerton is proposing road safety improvements along Harbor Blvd, between Bastanchury and Brea Rd/Valley View – approximately between St. Jude Hospital and Hillcrest Park. This area, which has a 50 mpg speed limit, currently has narrow bike lanes and missing sidewalks. The City’s survey seeks input on bike lanes, sidewalks, street lighting, and traffic calming measures. This is an exciting proposal that could lead to some much-needed changes on Harbor Blvd!
