Bike Month is the perfect time to renew your commitment to making Michigan bicycling better.
Our education and advocacy work is solely for the benefit of bicyclists all over the state, whether you are a road cyclist, mountain biker, or just a casual recreational rider. We hope you will consider taking this opportunity to help further our mission.
There are lots of ways to get involved. The easiest is to become a member. A strong membership increases our influence at the State Capitol; every member helps amplify our mission. You can also choose to donate or set up an automatic recurring donation. We could not do our work without the donations of generous individuals who choose to support us with a gift.
In addition to the above, you can also get directly involved with our advocacy work by attending Lucinda Means Bicycle Advocacy Day. This one-day event takes place in Lansing on May 23, 2018. When you sign up, LMB will schedule a meeting between you and your local lawmakers to discuss bicycle issues. We will provide you with tips to help you prepare as well as information on the current bicycle legislation we are working on. Lunch on the Capitol Lawn is also included in registration. Advocacy Day’s face-to-face meetings go a long way in advancing bicycle legislation.
Bike Month is the perfect time to fundraise for LMB on Facebook. Facebook allows you to create a fundraiser on your personal profile and allows your friends to support us with a donation. Every dollar counts! Even if you raise just a few dollars, we greatly appreciate the effort. We have put together this step-by-step guide to creating Facebook Fundraisers for your convenience. Please feel free to tag your friends and encourage them to join you in supporting LMB.
Finally, you can support our work simply by riding! There are a number of bicycling events in May that participate in our $1 Per Rider Program. As part of the program, they have pledged to donate $1 to LMB for every rider at their event. In signing up for one of these great events, you will be supporting our work; all you have to do is enjoy the ride!
Regardless of how you choose to support LMB, be sure to hop on your bicycle and ride this Bike Month. LMB wishes you safe and happy riding!
