Want more and better options for bicycling? Want the communities where you live and work to have safer roads? Join Bicycle Colorado at the state capitol on Tuesday, February 26 to lobby for better bicycling. Safe Streets Day at the Capitol is a great opportunity to show up and speak up about what is important to you–directly with your legislators. Do it for yourself, your kids, your riding buddies and individuals who can’t be there. The event is brief—from 8 to 10 a.m—and free registration includes breakfast.
Your personal stories make a significant difference, bolster Bicycle Colorado’s advocacy efforts and help amplify the collective voice of bicycle riders in Colorado. Your legislators want to hear from you, and Bicycle Colorado will make sure they know that you have showed up.
What to expect…
Safe Streets Day allows you to be part of democracy in action. You’ll feel empowered to share your personal story on bicycling issues facing your community and Colorado.
You may only get a few minutes with your legislators, and Bicycle Colorado will provide talking points to everyone who registers guide you should you have questions. The topics might change right up until February 26 because activity in the legislature can move fast with priorities changing rapidly. But the most important piece to share is your own personal passion for better bicycling, walking and safer streets.
Bicycle Colorado aims to connect as many state legislators and their aides with constituents as possible so that legislators understand the importance of bicycling and improving access and safety. This is your chance to show up and be heard.
