This is from the League of American Bicyclists:

Dear Cyclists,

I woke up this morning with a true sense of urgency: I couldn't bear to see 20 years of progress swept away without trying everything to save biking and walking in the Transportation bill. I hope I can share that sense of urgency with you and ask you to take just a couple of minutes to call your Representative - today. Right now.

An e-mail may not be enough – please call the district office for your Representative.

Your Representative plays a key role in this debate. Please let him know that bicycle and pedestrian safety is important to you – and 83% of Americans. Urge him to pass a transportation bill that incorporates the bicycle and pedestrian provisions passed in the Senate’s bipartisan transportation bill (MAP-21).

If you need more information, please read these pieces, and share them with your friends:

Talking points:

As your constituent I am calling today to urge you to pass a transportation bill that preserves funding for important bicycling and walking programs

Local communities must have access to these funds to ensure that safe bicycling and walking condition are provided to save lives

Over 65 pedestrians died in our district between 2001 and 2010.

Having saddled communities with unsafe streets, it would be the height of cruelty for Congress now to take away resources from local communities trying to improve those conditions and save lives.

Please let me know where cyclists stand on this important issue
