Bike Fed (10)
I finally had an incentive to go check out the Bike Fed when they had a party at the Lakefront Brewery early this spring. I figured I could spend $25 for a membership that included food, beer, and like minded cyclists. I met some great people that night and realized more about the power that we had to make Milwaukee and Wisconsin a better place to bike.
One of the best events of the year was bike-to-work week. Each day stations throughout the city were supplied with free coffee, pastries, and one day you could even ride in with the Mayor. Also after work parties were held and was finished off with a bike-in-movie and the Miller Lite Ride for the Arts.
The Bike Fed’s lobbying work with legislators has been a great force and gives me one of the things Milwaukee was lacking on the buses, bike racks. For me those are my tow truck. More lanes, trails, and most importantly safety and awareness is a benefit to us all.
