Wisconsin Bike Summit 4/19--Who is in?
We're pretty stoked about the Wisconsin Bike Summit in Madison on April 19. Last year Ron went on behalf of his employer. He was inspired by the summit, but disappointed to find that he was one of two people representing Waukesha County at the summit.
This year, though, we actually have an advocacy group and we can organize to make the Waukesha crowd a respectable size! Funding for bicycle infrastructure is in danger of being cut, and we have an opportunity to tell our representatives that even in conservative Waukesha County, bicycling has a lot of support. It is a big business in Wisconsin, plus it is an inexpensive way to solve many problems that government faces: school transportation, roads, pollution, and public health.
So, with that said, who is going to go? Are you planning on driving or would you like a ride? Are you going to bike to Madison on Monday? Let us know in the comments and we'll try to coordinate transportation!
