National Advocacy News

22 Feb

Three of the big bicycling advocacy organizations have announced they will merge and become one big powerhouse advocacy group.

The Alliance for Biking & Walking, League of American Bicyclists and Bikes Belong were meeting in California when they came to this agreement. The decision to merge seems to have come about as a way to pool resources to become a singular, powerful voice to promote bicycling as a viable means of transportation and as recreation.

It makes sense to me that one united voice would be more effective, all three are great organizations. In these tough economic times and the current political climate we need the loudest, most powerful voice for cycling we can have.
