Take Action: Show Your Support for Protected Bikeways in the Budget

In today's Star Tribune, Council President Barb Johnson unfortunately singles out protected bikeways for criticism in Mayor Hodges's budget proposal. This investment is a critical first step to building a network of protected bikeways. It will mean miles of new protected bikeways built next year! Without it, we can't build those miles.

Please help us send a strong message of community support for money for protected bikeways.

1. Call or email your City Council Member today!

Message: I strongly support funding in the budget for protected bikeways and I hope you will too.

(You can certainly say that you saw the Star Tribune article that there is some push back and you want to offer your strong support. You can add why it's important to you, but important thing is to call even if all you say is that you support it.)

If you call, it's very unlikely you'll talk directly with your Council Member (although it could happen). You'll probably just leave a message with friendly staff or voicemail.
