Advocacy opportunity

From the League of MI Bicyclists: Are you tired of vehicles buzzing too close to your bicycle? Do you think our roads should have wide shoulders or designated bicycle lanes? Do you dream of a day you can ride in traffic and feel safe?

The Lucinda Means Advocacy Day is your chance to affect change!

On June 5, bicyclists from around the state will join forces for a RIDE & RALLY at the State Capitol building. Our goal is to show state policy makers that bicyclists have a collective voice. And that voice is concerned about bicyclists' safety on roadways.

Just by showing up you will make a difference, since there is truly strength in numbers! You will learn which issues LMB is targeting and how you can reach out to your state legislators. We will arrange for you to meet with them that same afternoon.

If you're a bicyclist who wants to improve the state of cycling in Michigan, come rally with us. Afterward, enjoy lunch on the Capitol grounds, compliments of the League of Michigan Bicyclists. There is no charge for this event. Proceeds from the Lucinda Means Advocacy Fund are funding your participation.

Please pre-register online so we can make sure we have lunch for you. Invite your friends to join you.
