Streetfilms provides a more professional and broader perspective on the National Bike Summit ride that I shot in a previous post. It also offers some perspective on advocacy and lobbying, which is appropriate since our Wisconsin Bike Summit is April 19th in Madison. This year more than ever it is important to go say the word “bicycle” to your elected representative, especially if you are from a district with a republican in office. Bicycles have about the best return on investment of any investment in transportation. The Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin will help you with facts to back that up, so when you can sell cycling as a conservative agenda item. I hope to see you there.
Streetfilms is a great organization based out of NYC that creates really informative videos about livable cities around the world. Take some time to look over their videos, really cool stuff. You can donate to Streetfilms if you want to support their work.
