Your Bicycling Resources

Your Bicycling Resources

Biking is so fun, feeling the wind on your face, and watching the landscape fly by. And the only energy you burn is your own calories! If only there were safer roads for biking, and more bike paths! Here are resources for advocacy for bicycling, and more:

Effective Advocacy for Bicycling. You can make a difference in cycling by participation in your local governmental public input process, or by serving on boards and commissions.To do so you will need to know that the issues are, and what the public perception of cycling is, arguments that you are likely to encounter, and the methods to defeat them or advance them as the case may be.

We're bicycling from San Francisco to Washington, DC between 24-July and 22-Sept, 2010, without motorized support. Cynthia McKinney, six term Member of Congress and 2008 Green Party nominee for President, is riding. The ride will demonstrate the bicycle as a transformational tool to solve the problems of Climate Change, Oil Wars, the Health Crisis, and the Economic Crunch. Along the way, riders will facilitate community discussions around the question "How can we support each other to live true to our best values?"

Our route, schedule, and discussion group are open to anybody with a free Google account. Please join us. If you would like to bicycle all or part of the route, plan a convergence ride, or host riders passing through your community, please e-mail bike4peace@googlegroups.com. Please forward this and re-post to others who might be interested.
