Orange County Bicycle Coalition
Promoting Bicycling as Everday Transportation and Recreation
The Orange County Bicycle Coalition is a bicycling advocacy organization (501(c)(3) non-profit) for Orange County, California.
Orange County is located between Los Angeles County and San Diego County in Southern California.
To promote bicycling as an everyday
means of transportation and recreation.
Commuting and recreational bicyclists formed the Orange County Bicycle Coalition (OCBC) in 1991 to promote bicycling as an everyday means of transportation and recreation. OCBC is explicitly authorized to represent about 2000 Orange County bicyclists who are members of member clubs. Beyond that, we speak for all bicyclists, including the poor, the elderly, and children, and for the bicycle industry. In 1994, OCBC obtained tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code, and has retained that status ever since.
