Action Needed- Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School Needs Your Help!

ACTION NEEDED: Important vote in House of Representatives on Monday, April 14

Please call or email your state house representative today and ask them to support House Bill 1301– Safe Routes to School, which continues funding for the Safe Routes to School program.

Opponents are trying to strip the program’s funding in behind-the-scenes negotiations. Now is the time for every Colorado Representative to hear that child safety and health is a priority in Colorado.

STEP 1: FIND YOUR STATE HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE
Find your Colorado House Rep. by entering your home address on this site http://openstates.org/
Select your house representative to see their phone and email.

STEP 2: CALL OR EMAIL YOUR HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE
Ask them to please support House Bill 1301 (Mitsch Bush, Kerr)–Safe Routes to School. Leave your name, address and briefly share why you think the safety and health of children in Colorado are important. Even it if is a weekend or evening, you can still call and leave a voicemail.

STEP 3: FORWARD AND POST TO YOUR FRIENDS
We don’t issue action alerts unless it really matters. Without this bill, the statewide safe routes to school program will come to an end. Your efforts can help change that.

This alert will stay active until we remove it from our website. Keep current and learn more about the bill at www.bicyclecolorado.org/2014-safe-routes-to-school-act/

YOUR CALL MATTERS
At our recent Colorado Bicycle Summit, legislators shared that only five phone calls on an issue was seen as a groundswell of support. Imagine their interest in this issue if everyone receiving this email made a call? Please be one of the five calls from your district to make a difference.

Thank you for helping make Colorado a safer place for kids to bike and walk!

  • #BicycleColorado supporter FattE-Bikes is offering a holiday promo for new bike buyers now through Thanksgiving weekend! If you’ve been thinking about getting either a fat bike or an e-bike, now’s the time to do both (and support a local Colorado business while you’re at it)!

I left at 31 ° this morning. Contrary to what I have believed my entire life, you can ride a bike at that temperature. However, I miss having hair, because 31 degrees, going ~25 mph down a hill, is really cold when it goes through the helmet and hits the bald head. @bicyclecolo #bicyclecommute #lesscars
  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
