Where: Massachusetts State House, Nurses’ Hall, Boston

For the second year in a row, MassBike and WalkBoston are co-sponsoring the Massachusetts Bike/Walk Summit. This event is free and open to the public, and we hope to have the State House overrun with biking and walking advocates.

The Schedule:

  • Before you arrive: Call in to your state legislators’ offices to set up a meeting time.
  • 10:00 – 12:00 PM: Check in at Nurses’ Hall, get materials and tips, and meet with your legislators.
  • 12:00 – 1:00 PM: Come back to Nurses’ Hall for lunch and a quick talk by Fitchburg’s Mayor, Lisa Wong.

The Ask (Tentative):

While we are still determining all the details of our legislative agenda, we know that the Vulnerable Road Users bill, Speed Limit Reduction bill, and the Governor’s Transportation Plan are all going to feature prominently. We should have the details of the ask by mid-March, so stay tuned as specifics emerge.
