Support biking and walking in Pittsburgh

Bike Pittsburgh hopes to form a voting bloc to make biking and walking an issue in the next election.  They hope to unite the people who want Pittsburgh to invest significantly in the programs and infrastructure that will transform our streets and communities into healthy, vibrant places that are safe and accessible for everyone to bike and walk.

We posted about this last month, but this effort is ongoing and BikePgh could use your support.  If you feel that the rights of pedestrians and cyclists are underrepresented, BikePgh has created an online petition which you can sign to tell the candidates that we want our city to compete with all the other world-class cities investing in better bikeways and pedestrian facilities.  The goal is to collect 3,000 signatures by the primary election on May 21; thus far, they have over 1,700 signatures.  If you agree with their goals, please take the time to read and sign the petition.
