The International Bicycle Fund (IBF) is an independent, non-profit organization. Its primary purpose is to promote sustainable transport worldwide and international understanding. Major areas of activity are non-motorized urban planning, economic development, bike safety education, responsible travel and bicycle tourism (Ibike Tours), and cross-cultural, educational programs. IBF's objective is to create a sustainable, people-friendly environment by creating opportunities of the highest practicable quality for bicycle transportation. Geographic focus: Africa, Asia, Cuba and South America. IBF is funded by private donation.
Through education, advocacy and demonstration projects, our aim is to encourage social attitudes, and infrastructure and market development that promote the use of bicycles and other forms of sustainable transport for of business, person-welfare and recreation activities. Priority is given to less affluent regions.
The common element in all the activities of the International Bicycle Fund is bicycles. Beyond that IBF covers a lot of territory: urban planning, facility design, women in development, rural mobility, traffic safety education, human settlement, quality of life, person health, energy conservation and responsible tourism. IBF works internationally to promote sustainable transport, preserve environmental quality and build international understanding. IBF is largely a volunteer effort.
Types of Programs:
IBF provides technical advice, consulting, strategic planning, material support and financial support worldwide. Because of limited resources (both labor and funds) most of our material and financial support is provided as small matching grants to grassroots or community based organizations undertaking unique initiatives in less developed economies
