BIKE ADVOCACY DAY
Advocates and bicyclists from around California come together in Sacramento every spring for California Bike Advocacy Day. Starting in 2016, the event is combined with a "Transportation Equity Summit" in coordination with TransForm. The summit provides training and networking and knowledge sharing on key transportation equity issues. Who benefits from our transportation investments? Who is negatively impacted? What can we do to provide high quality transportation to everyone in California, especially low-income people? Advocacy Day features face-to-face meetings with legislators where we lobby for policy changes we talked about the day before including more funding for bicycle networks, and better laws and policies to enable more Californians to bicycle. We also usually hold a reception with special guest speakers. Attendees include local coalition staff, board members, and supporters; bicycle club members; and others passionate about improving bicycling and transportation policies.
