Tweet Congress for Biking Today!
The League is currently hosting the 2014 National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C. — uniting the voices of bicyclists on Capitol Hill.
Maybe you’re here in D.C. with us. Maybe you weren’t able to make it — but you still want to be involved. Either way, make sure Congress hears bicyclists’ voices loud and clear today.
If you’re here at the Summit, we appreciate the time and energy you’re putting into Lobby Day today. For those of you at home, we want to make sure you’re in on the fun. Tweet your representatives and let them know that, just because you can’t be in Washington, doesn’t mean you don’t care about bicycling.
Find your elected officials’ Twitter handle by using this directory, and tell them to co-sponsor these important bills that increase the safety and equity of bicycling.
Here are the official “ask” tweets you can use:

(Don’t forget the period at the start, if you want the public to see. Without it, only your member will see the message.)
It may feel like one tweet to you, but it makes a big difference. Thank you for your help!
