National Bike Summit 2019
Rhode Island was well represented by Bike Newport and the Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition in D.C. for the annual National Bike Summit 2019. Plenty of informative workshops gave us an abundance of ideas to bring back to Newport. We’ve learned a lot and look forward to bringing these ideas to fruition in the next few months.
On Lobby Day at the U.S. Senate, our three main asks included requesting the support of:
- The Bicycle Commuter Act of 2019
- The COMMUTE Act (House bill and Senate bill)
- Improving Transportation Alternatives
