BikeWalk NC Lobby Day – April 5, 2017

Join Bike Law North Carolina at the first BikeWalk NC Lobby Day in Raleigh to meet legislators and fellow bicycling advocates on April 5th, 2017.

 

Purpose of the NC Biking Lobby Day

1. We want legislators to understand that bicycling and walking are legitimate and viable modes of transportation; a necessary and legitimate part of any new transportation funding package (currently being considered at both the state and federal level).

2. We want our advocates to meet and build relationships with their legislators.

3. We want to thank them for HB959 – new laws that improve safety for motorists and bicyclists.

3. We want to have a presence and continue the “Bike Movement”

Who Should Attend

Anyone who cares at all about bicycling. You do not need to attend all day – can just come for <1 hour to meet your legislator or stay all day!

A federal government agency is making a controversial recommendation to all 50 states that all bicyclists be required to wear helmets.   Mandatory bicycle helmet laws are a terrible idea.  Cycling as a form of recreation and transportation offers a myriad of benefits to the individual and the community as a whole.  An adult or child […]
