Bicycle Colorado wins Advocacy Award from Thunderhead Alliance

From Thunderhead Alliance's press release...

Bicycle Colorado is being honored with the 2009 Best Practice Award for its outstanding results in day-to-day operations and program growth. After surpassing their goal to double their staff and budget, they secured funding to promote biking on Colorado’s 25 scenic byways, created a Bicycle Education Fund, and now have the largest membership base of a state-wide bicycle advocacy organization in the U.S.

Bicycle Colorado does a lot! 303cycling has 0 paid staff member while Bicycle Colorado has I believe 7 full time members who responsibilities range widely. Whether you are a racer, bike commuter, lazy bum who transports by bike, parent of child, bike shop owner or hospital emergency room staff, Bicycle Colorado has an effect on you. Every time I meet with a member of Bicycle Colorado I am amazed at their "reach" in Colorado. If you want to learn more about Bicycle Colorado or help out their cause then attend their annual fundraiser, Bicycle Colorado Gala Celebration April 24.
