• November 8: Bicycle Advocacy for the Busy Majority

    Vote on Bike Delaware’s 2012 Advocacy Goals

    To paraphrase a great contemporary political philosopher, you may have a life and a family and a job (or may be be looking for a job) and be too busy for bicycle advocacy.  That’s fine.  But, even if you are part of the great Busy Majority, you should make a few minutes in your busy schedule to come out and vote for Bike Delaware’s 2012 goals on Tuesday, November 8.

    Think of this as an annual check up.  This only happens once a year.

    (The discussion surrounding this vote will extend into the evening but, if you need to vote and leave to pick up your kids, make dinner and/or meet a group of civil war re-enactor friends, we welcome and encourage that!  Just swing by, vote and go.)
