Join the Peopleforbikes.org Campaign!
Bikes Belong, the bicycle industry's advocacy and education organization, recently launched a new effort to unite one million voices to improve bicycling in the United States. It simply asks people to sign a pledge in support of biking. The campaign is called Peopleforbikes.org, and the goal is to help make our nation a better place to ride by sending a powerful message to our elected leaders, the media, and the public that bicycling is important and should be promoted.
My 5-year old grandson signed the pledge and inspired me to sign on as well. To date, more than 90,000 people across the country have signed the pledge, and the League of American Bicyclists just joined in urging their members to sign the pledge.
So please take a moment to visit the website and sign the pledge. It is quick and easy. All the campaign needs is your name and email address:
Please ask your friends, family, and fellow riders to sign the pledge, too.
