State Contacts Needed
Be the Top Bike Advocate in your State
One of the key ingredients to a successful Bike Summit are the state contacts that selflessly volunteer their time to schedule and coordinate the Hill meetings for their respective State Delegations. There are still a handful of states that have not been assigned a State Contact, and we are hoping that you will consider assisting in the production of another great National Bike Summit by volunteering. States still in need of a State Contact are:
  • Alaska  
  • Delaware 
  • Florida  
  • Iowa  
  • Kansas  
  • Kentucky  
  • Maryland  
  • Michigan  
  • North Dakota  
  • New Hampshire  
  • Vermont  
  • Wyoming

If you are interested in becoming a state contact for one of the above states, please contact Katie Omberg at Katie@bikeleague.org or 202.621.5455.

Spread the Word!
Does your state need more advocates on the Hill and at the National Bike Summit this year? Have an impressive showing by recruiting more of your local advocates through your Web site, newsletter, Facebook/Twitter accounts or e-mails by using our free National Bike summit promotional materials. Please visit bikeleague.org/summit_promotion to find logos, ads, banners, buttons and also our QR code. Together we can spread the word, and together, we will get more than 800 bike advocates on the Hill telling our political leaders that we bike, we vote, and bicycling must be included in the next Transportation Bill.
