I’m off to Washington

Posted by on February 27th, 2006 at 11:15 pm

Hard to believe that less than 8 hours from now I’ll be on a plane to Washington DC for the National Bike Summit. I’m all packed (I think) and right now I’m printing up a copy of the BTA’s Blueprint for Better Biking to read on the plane.

We’ve got a big dinner planned for tomorrow night with the entire Oregon delegation (does that make it a State dinner?) and maybe some congressional staffers. I’ve never been involved with the advocacy scene on this level, so I’m not quite sure what I’m getting into. I just figure when we’re in the halls of Congress I’ll let Jessica and Scott Bricker (the BTA’s policy guy) do the talking.

But then again I’ve got my shnazzy new BikePortland.org business cards so I’m ready for anything.

Of course I wouldn’t even be going if it weren’t for the generosity of my readers. Thanks again to everyone who donated to make this trip possible. Stay tuned for reports from DC!

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with class and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
