SABA represents bicyclists throughout the Sacramento area, regardless of their type of bike or how they use it. Its mission is simple: more and safer trips by bike. SABA’s purpose is to improve the health and quality of life of residents of the greater Sacramento area by promoting bicycling for transportation and promoting more and safer bicycle trips through education, community service and other charitable acts.

Half of all trips are no more than three miles in length, and cars are used for 60% of all trips a mile or less.
