The Iowa Bicycling Rally at the Capitol is on February 22. The Iowa Bicycle Coalition is inviting bicyclists from all over Iowa to meet with their legislators to talk about bicycle issues. This is crucial because it is one week before the funnel deadline. Bike safety bills could become ready for the House and Senate Chambers during the week of our rally.
Information tables will be in the Iowa State Capitol Rotunda starting at 9 AM. Bicyclists are encouraged to attend, visit the tables and visit with their legislators starting at 10 AM. The rally will take place from noon to 1 PM with speakers and a group photo. Following the rally, bicyclists will go to the house and senate chamber doors to visit with their legislators.
Attendees can RSVP at https://2017bikelobbyday.eventbrite.com/ Early RSVP’s will help coordinate meetings with legislators. For those looking to carpool, you can sign up for rides at www.iowarideshare.org.
