MoBikeFed's Vision for Bicycling and Walking in Missouri

MoBikeFed's "Vision of Bicycling and Walking in Missouri" (PDF format) sums up years of conversations with MoBikeFed members, bicyclists, pedestrians, citizens, and officials across Missouri into a single document.

The vision lists concrete, measurable things MoBikeFed--with the cooperation of individuals, groups, agencies, and officials across the state--plans to accomplish in Missouri in the next 5-10 years.

Action Items in the Vision are tracked annually.  These Annual Reports summarize where Missouri stands each year. See the 2008 Report Card, the 2009 Annual Reports, the 2010 Annual Reports, and the 2011 Annual Reports, 2012 Annual Reports, and the 2013 Annual Reports.

The Vision is a work-in-progress and a living document, so please let us know what you think--what should be added or emphasized?



Highlights of the Vision:

  • Double the number of people walking, bicycling, and using mass transit in the next 10 years
  • Cut bicycle and pedestrian crash rates in half at the same time
  • Double MoBikeFed membership in the next 5 years
