Bike/Ped Day at the Capitol, April 7th, 2014 - Come join us; Volunteers needed!

 

Bicycle and Pedestrian Day at the Capitol 

Monday, April 7th, 2014. Jefferson City, MO.

Join bicyclists and pedestrians from around the state as we come together to talk to our legislators about MBF's vision for active transportation in Missouri.

Transportation, recreation, health and fitness, sustainability, tourism, etc. are all on the agenda - and we will start with advocacy training to help you effectively communicate with your own Representative and Senator.
