The Olympic Peninsula Bicycle Alliance (OPBA) is all about cycling on the Olympic Peninsula—the “OP.”
We live here, so we ride incredible routes every day—every day we get to explore this incredible world of cycling. Many of us have logged tens of thousands of miles over a lifetime of cycling, while others discovered the joy and the rewards of cycling more recently. Many have cycled all over the world but the OP’s roads and trails are where we share great rides without ever leaving “home.”
The cycling community on the Olympic Peninsula is a diverse group with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and riding abilities. And, like others energized by a passion for cycling, we’re actively engaged in improving bicycle safety, making our cities and towns more cyclist friendly, and educating others about the many benefits of biking.
We’ve gathered a lot of information about cycling on the Olympic Peninsula and we aim to keep adding to our lists of great routes, super rides, and cyclist friendly places to stay, feast, have fun, and make great memories as you explore a whole new world of cycling adventure.
Come “Ride the OP!”
WHO WE ARE
OPBA was formed to serve the interests and meet the needs of cyclists on the Olympic Peninsula—whether they live here or come to visit in search of great rides. We’re a new 501(c)3 non-profit organization incorporated in Washington State in February 2017.
We envision the Olympic Peninsula as an entire region of cyclist friendly towns and cities where cycling is a way of life—a primary means of transportation, health and fitness, and community engagement and enrichment. We see the OP as a whole new world of cycling adventure, discovery, and enjoyment.
Our mission is to make cycling the OP better, safer, and more accessible for all cyclists. We work closely with governments and businesses, organizations and individuals, to promote bicycle safety, education, and training, while promoting the Olympic Peninsula as a premier cycling destination.
During the coming year, we’ll be growing our membership, adding new routes to our library of great places to ride and explore on the Olympic Peninsula, expanding the listing in each service category, and otherwise working to achieve our goal of becoming a principal source of information on all things related to cycling the OP.
We hope you’ll join us!
