Bikes Belong to Play Major Role in Reauthorization Battle
 
07/21/2002
The Board of Directors of the Bikes Belong Coalition announced their major support of the battle to enhance the pro bicycle policies in the next iteration of the federal transportation bill. America Bikes, a coalition of the countryšs leading bicycle advocacy groups, welcomed the commitment of Bikes Belong to put $500,000 towards the campaign.

"Because of the tremendous support from the bicycle industry through Bikes Belong, America Bikes will be the professional, well-run campaign it needs to be," said Martha Roskowski, the newly designated campaign manager for America Bikes. "Wešre getting to work now on this tremendous opportunity to fund a broad expansion of bicycle and trail networks, create a national safe routes to school program and require that all transportation projects accommodate cyclists."

Roskowski, currently the Executive Director of Bicycle Colorado, will assume her new post as the America Bikes campaign manager at a campaign kickoff at the National Bike Summit in Washington DC, March 6-8.

John Burke, President of Bikes Belong Coalition and President of Trek Bicycle Corporation, said, "Bikes Belong is following through with its commitment to put more people on bikes more often by supporting this major legislative battle. A successful BikeTEA Campaign will lead to unprecedented federal funding to bring better bicycling to communities across the country, resulting in increased participation in cycling for Americans of all ages."
