Bikes Belong Coalition launches People for Bikes campaign with goal of 1 million

Posted Mar 10 2010 7:54am

This week is the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, a meeting of all the major bicycle advocacy organizations to push for more resources for bikes as a valid form of transportation. At the summit, the Bikes Belong Coalition has rolled out their new People for Bikes initiative with a goal of getting the signed support of 1 million of the estimated 50 million American who ride bikes. This campaign is their attempt at a show of force in how large and diverse the cycling community is.

At the most basic level, those wanting to support cycling resources can sign the People for Bikes pledge here which says:

I am for bikes. I’m for long rides and short rides. I’m for commuting to work, weekend rides, racing, riding to school, or just a quick spin around the block. I believe that no matter how I ride, biking makes me happy and is great for my health, my community and the environment we all share. That is why I am pledging my name in support of a better future for bicycling—one that is safe and fun for everyone. By uniting my voice with a million others, I believe that we can make our world a better place to ride.

There are also other great organizing tools and ways to spread the word to friends, family, and co-workers.
