This year has been huge for MassBike’s role in local advocacy.
We launched our Bikeable Communities Program, through which we have engaged scores of local advocates to help them make their community better for biking. In Northampton and Boston, we offered the Bikeable Communities Training, a two-part class that goes over the planning process and how to effectively plug into that process. We also have undertaken Bikeability Assessments in Franklin County and the Pioneer Valley, teaching volunteers how to use the audit tool we created and then drafting reports based on the findings. And we are involved in a few planning activities around Massachusetts, helping municipal officials develop strategies for how best to plan for biking.
But we’ve barely gotten started. Help us expand our bike advocacy trainings and help increase local capacity to improve bicycling conditions across Massachusetts.
For the next five days (December 3rd – December 7th) we are offering our 1 year individual and 1 year family memberships at a discounted rate ($10 off). Join the movement today; together we can make better bicycling in Massachusetts a reality!
