Bills to improve bicycling and increase transportation options are moving through the state legislature and your voice is needed more than ever. The legislative session only runs through May, so now is a critical time to show up and speak up. Do it for yourself, your kids, your riding buddies and individuals who can’t be there.
We will offer a light breakfast and coffee for attendees, legislators and legislative aids. Talking points on the current legislative bills will be provided, but what matters most is you sharing your passion for bicycling with legislators.
Make sure to stick around for the opportunity to test ride an electric-assist bicycle. Denver-based Haibike is bringing 13 bikes from all three “classifications” (power levels) for you to try. EBike demonstrations will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. outside the state capitol.
Public tours are conducted daily on the hour from 9 am to 4 pm. For tour information contact the Tour Office at (916) 324-0333.
We would love to have statewide representation at this event!
