The people we elect in Washington state this year will decide on tens of billions of dollars in transportation funding. In no other time in our history have the stakes been so high.
View our endorsements for the 2012 election cycle.
Will the leaders that we elect fight for a future where everyone has the freedom to safely ride their bicycle? Or will they go back to business as usual, focused on transportation planning that clogs our streets, pollutes our air, damages our children’s health, and is a far cry from the Washington state we envision for our future?
The choice is up to us.
BikePAC, the political arm of Cascade Bicycle Club, helps elect pro-bike candidates. Our work is about electing, defending and rewarding the true champions for creating a better community through bicycling. Champions who will work with us to influence the budget and fund important projects, affect the policies that keep us safe on our streets, and guide the plans that that shape the future of our communities. It’s also about building bipartisan support for bicycling, because to get anything done in these hyper-partisan times, you must reach across the aisle.
We have a huge opportunity this year. Several exciting pro-bike candidates have stepped up to run. And, with your support, Bike PAC has a plan to ensure that they win.
Money raised for BikePAC in 2012 will go directly to the candidates who will stand up for bicycling as the state and local jurisdictions decide our transportation future. These are the candidates who you’ll see riding their bikes to doorbell their district, the ones who came into their interview and left us speechless with their knowledge of state transportation policy and funding, the ones with a passionate commitment to creating a better community through bicycling. These are the candidates who will get things done.
Your support will help build political power for the bicycling movement and could help leverage hundreds of millions of dollars for bicycling in Washington in the next two years.
Thank you for helping create a better Washington through bicycling.
