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.
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.
