Advocacy

The League of Michigan Bicyclists (LMB) is the voice for bicycling in Michigan, working on behalf of all bicyclists to make Michigan bicycling safe, comfortable, and convenient. LMB staff regularly represent the interests of Michigan bicyclists at the state level, advocating for bicycle-friendly policies at the State Capitol. 

LMB Advocates For:

LMB holds Lucinda Means Bicycle Advocacy Day every year State Capitol to communicate our legislative priorities with lawmakers. LMB also holds statewide bicycle conferences to help provide education and tools to improve cycling conditions at the local level.

LMB's Micro-Grant Program provides financial assistance to individuals and organizations who implement creative projects that promote bicycling and the safety of bicyclists on Michigan roadways. Micro-Grant funds are awarded annually in May in celebration of National Bike Month.

Education


Education plays a key role in improving conditions for bicycling. LMB seeks to educate bicyclists, motorists, engineers and law enforcement personnel.

These efforts include the development of the What Every Michigan Bicyclist Must Know booklet which is distributed to clubs, shops, police departments, libraries, organizations and anyone interested in promoting safe bicycling.

LMB also developed and conducts Community Safety for Law Enforcement training sessions for law enforcement, parents, bicycle commuters and those interested in running bike rodeos.

LMB created the bicycle-education curriculum for Michigan Safe Routes to School. LMB also represents bicyclists on the Governor's Bike/Pedestrian Safety Task Force, Healthy Kids, Healthy Michigan Task Force and MDOT safety groups.

Additionally, LMB promotes Bike to Work Week and other statewide commuting initiatives. LMB encourages its members and member clubs to support and organize local bike-commuting programs.

LMB regularly takes part in events throughout the state and beyond as an exhibitor promoting Michigan bicycling.
