Bike/Walk Central Florida
The Florida Bicycle Association (FBA) established a Central Florida chapter in January 2010 to advocate locally, serving Orange and Seminole counties, for a healthier, safer community for walkers and bicyclists thanks to a two-year, $95,600 grant from the Winter Park Health Foundation (WPHF). The Central Florida Chapter is the second local chapter of FBA and the first to have a paid part-time executive director.
The Central Florida Chapter will be known as Bike/Walk Central Florida and will enable FBA to localize its advocacy and educational efforts. The chapter’s goals are to increase the number of people biking and walking and create a safer environment for them.
