Edmonton AB T5M 3K6
The Alberta Bicycle Association was incorporated on February 27, 1973. At this time the major concerns in the early 1970s were:
- To promote racing in Alberta
- To encourage popularity and participation in racing
- To increase the number of organized races
Until this time all funding and business of cycling was directed through the Canadian Cycling Association (“CCA”). In the 1970s sport organizations were forming throughout Alberta with the intent of receiving government funding and autonomy. Upon incorporation the Alberta Bicycle Association became recognized as the governing body of cycling in Alberta.
Today the The ABA is a not-for-profit association run by professional staff, relying on membership fees, fundraising, and government support for operating funds. ABA members include road, track, BMX, cyclo-cross, mountain bike, and downhill racing, recreational and transportation, educators, coaches, officials, administrators, enthusiast, volunteers, and advocates of the sport.
The mission of the ABA is to advocate, develop, and facilitate bicycling for Albertans.
The vision of the ABA is to be the recognized authority and leader for bicycling in Alberta.
