Starting your own bike committee
This guide aims to give bicycle advocates the tools needed to successfully push for programmatic, policy, and infrastructure improvements. Over 1.2 million Massachusetts residents bicycle every year. More people want to bicycle more often than their current activity level. The potential for better bicycling and a more potent grassroots movement is extremely strong. This guide will get you started forming your own local bicycle committee, you might also be interested in starting a MassBike chapter.
