N.C. cycle delegation mounts Capitol Hill
Last year we had 17 delegates from all over N.C. This year: 20 ! Talk about an adrenalin rush ! This year Ray LaHood, US Secretary of Transportation, spoke along with Janette Sadik-Khan, NY City’s bicycle czar. Since 2007, the Big Apple has completed more than 250 miles of bike lanes and 20 miles of cycle track.
Charlotte’s delegates this year included Bart Stetler (Queen City Bikes), and Jim Grover (Pres./Tarheel Trailblazers). For the Streetsblog wrap up article, CLICK: League of American Bicyclists Summit. Each year on the final day of the Summit NC delegates lobby on Capitol Hill at all the NC Congressional offices. This year’s theme was to advocate that no money be cut from bicycle and pedestrian programs.
