I am the founder and chairperson of the Motherlode Bicycle Coalition and I am asking for your help to support CalBike, California's statewide bicycle advocacy organization.
CalBike is the leading advocate for cycling and walking in California. This non-profit works to increase cycling and walking opportunities along the roads of California. They work with communities to create safe spaces for walking and biking. They work with legislators to create bike-friendly policy. They work with transportation departments to build safe streets. CalBike advocates for equitable, inclusive, and prosperous communities where bicycling helps to enable all Californians to lead healthy and joyful lives.
Close to home, CalBike recently completed a report that identified 4 signature projects in the Motherlode that can be used as blueprints to make cycling and walking part of our rural communities.
This October, as part of CalBike’s Dream Ride Challenge, I rode my bike along popular Gold Country roads to support CalBike, I created a Dream Ride Fundraising Campaign to raise $1,500.
If you’re reading this letter, it’s because you love biking in the Motherlode and are interested in improving access along the roads and future trails you love to ride. Your contribution will support CalBike as they work to improve biking for all.
