Dear Club Rider and Friend of Bicycling,
Bicyclists in our state have a lot of victories to celebrate with this spring’s passage of the Neighborhood Safe Streets bill now awaiting Governor Inslee’s signature, not to mention Washington’s recent #1 ranking by the League of American Bicyclists as most bicycle-friendly state in the nation for the sixth consecutive year. Legislative wins, and building a bike-friendly environment, don’t happen overnight and are achieved with your financial support and willingness to make your voice heard.
On May 15 Bicycle Alliance will again participate in GiveBIG, the largest philanthropic event in the Northwest, organized by Seattle Foundation. The whole purpose of GiveBIG is to inspire people to donate generously to non-profits that make the region a healthier, more vibrant place to live and work. We hope you’ll agree Bicycle Alliance is working on your behalf to make the entire state better for bicycling, which is good for everyone whether or not you ride.
