As you may have heard (ok, definitely heard!), the League of American Bicyclist is currently hosting the 2012 National Bike Summit in Washington, DC
You can make your voice heard in DC from here in California or wherever you are. If you weren’t able to make it – but you still want to be involved. Make sure Congress hears bicyclists’ voices loud and clear today.
Find your elected officials’ Twitter handle at www.tweetcongress.org, and tell them that you bike and you vote!
Here are some sample tweets you can use:
Hey [@RepresentativeX]: #ibikeivote, Support a clean extension of the transpo bill and Petri amend #nbs12
Hey [@SenatorX]: #ibikeivote, Pls support clean extension of the transportation bill #nbs12
Hey [@RepresentativeX]: Remember the freedom of ur first #bike? Support bike funding in the #transportation bill! #ibikeivote #nbs12
It may feel like one tweet to you, but it makes a big difference. Thank you for your help to Save Cycling!
