I’m happy to report that after meeting with the BTA‘s Jessica Roberts yesterday, I am now a full-fledged member! I even put the cool little yellow sticker right here on my laptop.
It was great to tour the office and put faces to the names floating around my inbox.
The BTA is really doing some great work for Oregon cyclists. They’re pounding on doors in Salem and making sure that no infrastructure decisions are made in this state without consideration given to bicyclists needs and rights. They’re working with kids to teach them how to ride safely. They’re making our neighborhood more livable with their Safe Routes to School program.
They need support from everyone who thinks that our lives would be better if more people felt safe enough on the streets to ride a bike.
