MassBike is once again coordinating the Massachusetts delegation to the National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, on March 9-11, 2010. The Summit is organized by the League of American Bicyclists, and brought more than 500 dedicated bicyclists to DC last year. This is your opportunity to help us get more federal money for bicycling projects and programs from Congress. That money translates directly to bike lanes, rail trails, bike parking, education, Safe Routes to School, and much more. We need to show Congress and the federal government that bicyclists are a major political force!
We do all the hard work setting up meetings for you with our Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill – all you have to do is show up (easy), meet other bicyclists from all over the country (fun), and visit Congress with us (inspiring)! Click here for details
It makes our visits with Congress much stronger if voters from each district are with us. We’ve got Metro Boston and the Springfield area pretty well covered, but we could use more representation from everywhere else in the state – North Shore, South Shore, Cape & Islands, Metrowest, Worcester, Pioneer Valley, Berkshires – we need all of you.
We wish we could make this free, but you will be responsible for the Summit registration fee, transportation to DC, and accommodations (home stays may be available). But think of it as an investment in the future of bicycling in Massachusetts and America! Click here to register SAVE $$$ – REGISTER BY FEBRUARY 4TH
