Advocacy Efforts

ACF is Proud to Support Michigan's Cycling Community

Since 1928, American Cycle and Fitness has been dedicated to serving Michigan's local cycling community and beyond. Through advocacy with local and national bicycling organizations, support of cycling events, and education efforts, we are proud to say we are a strong member of our community. Without you, we wouldn't be where we are today. We encourage you to get involved with these wonderful organizations and to help us spread the love of bikes to all.

Safe Routes To School

Safe Routes to Schools

The National Center for Safe Routes to School encourages children to walk and bicycle to school. Their efforts go towards improving the safety and accessibility of routes and towards reducing traffic and pollution around schools. SRTS programs help to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age, contributing to spreading the love of cycling to a younger generation.

The League of American Bicyclists

League of American Bicyclists

The League of American Bicyclists is a national organization dedicated to creating a bicycle-friendly environment for everyone. They are working to ensure that people of all ages and abilities are able to use city streets and highways safely, regardless of their mode of transportation. American Cycle and Fitness donates $1 from every bike helmet purchased in our stores to LAB to help achieve their mission of a bicycle-friendly America.

International Mountain Bicycling Association


The International Mountain Bicycling Association's worldwide network of dedicated cyclists works hard every year to help spread the great experience of mountain biking. They advocate for policies that welcome bikes, build sustainable trails and bike facilities, and educate bike groups on how to organize and make mountain biking better at the local level. American Cycle and Fitness donates $10 from every full-suspension mountain bike purchase to IMBA.

People for Bikes

People for Bikes

Another national organization dedicated to bicycle advocacy, People for Bikes has been providing support to other US bike advocates and supporting local efforts since 1999. Their goals are simple: to help unify the cycling community, spread the word on issues that affect the bicyclists, and work to ensure safe and convenient riding opportunities for all.
