Cycling advocacy consists of activities that defend the rights of cyclists to use the public right-of-way roads for travel, to improve the conditions for cycling, and to make cycling more popular. There are many organizations whose primary mission is to advocate for these goals. They are supported by donations, membership dues, and volunteers.
