Floridians take the bike message to Congress

Three Miamians and a handful of others from around the state attended the National Bicycle Summit in Washington this week, learning all the latest about bicycle advocacy. In a traditional postlude to the annual event, many stayed a day extra to tell their members of Congress how important transportation funding is to making our streets and roads congenial for all users -- not just cars and trucks. I reluctantly declined a couple of offers of help to attend, because so much was going on in my work with Green Mobility Network. But Alan Snel, of Tampa, did make the trip and wrote a number of good pieces at his blog.

There's also extensive summit reporting, with photos and comments, at Bike Portland.
