If you support programs and progress like that outlined below, please consider joining, renewing, or making a donation in support--because your support makes progress like this possible: 

One of our goals is to become one of the most effective statewide bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations in the U.S. Every successful statewide advocacy group has a large, supportive membership--so we need to grow our membership to that level, too.

To keep us on track to meet that goal over the next five years, we need to reach our goal of 500 new/renewing MoBikeFed members by the end of January 2012--that's why we need your membership or renewal today.

The support of members like you is bringing real change to Missouri--and helping our Vision of Bicycling and Walking in Missouri become a reality.
