Tell the Washington Legislature: Focus on Safety and Complete Connections

Gigantic-Bicycle-Festival_08-23-14_forwebGoing into the 2015 legislative session — an important budget-writing year that sets the two-year transportation budget — we hope to build on our success in 2013 in getting an all-time record investment of over $40 million in biking/walking projects. We’ll be working for a forward-looking approach to transportation funding that recognizes how people want to move.

As the recent poll on kids and safe biking and walking showed, Washingtonians overwhelmingly want the legislature and their local leaders to invest in safer connections. Add your voice with our petition that asks the legislature for two fundamental things: making safety a top priority and funding complete bike connections.

Petition for Better Bicycling

Getting more people on bikes is good for our personal health, local businesses, our towns, our economy, and the air we breathe.

That’s why we call on the governor and the state legislature to make safer bicycling a top priority and to invest in more bike lanes and trails and improved road designs to create a complete network of bicycle connections.

    Excellent blog you have here but I was wondering if you
    knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thanks a lot!
