Blizzard Can’t Stop the Bike Summit: Advocates Head to Capitol Hill

The federal government is closed, but bike advocates are still trudging through the wind, rain and sleet to meet with members of Congress. While some offices are shuttered in the face of a potential blizzard, we still mean business about bringing the Bike Summit message — and the ever-popular bike pins — to Capitol Hill.

Here are just a few pictures of advocates making the ask — urging policymakers to support a national goal to reduce bicyclist fatalities, confirm Sally Jewell as the new Secretary of the Interior and visit a bicycle project back home.
