cyclists in suits 2013 biketexasWhat:

BikeTexas Cyclists in Suits – Texas Bike Lobby Day is a biennial event held during the Texas Legislature's regular sessions. It is great opportunity for Texas cyclists to share their love of cycling with their state legislators. The goal is to have cyclists from every legislative district in Texas visit the capitol with our staff and remind the legislature that we are voters and we want them to represent our cycling interests. Please join us! 

 

What to Wear:
Come dressed for business! It strengthens our image at the Capitol when people who ride bikes wear suits or similar professional attire while lobbying elected officials for better laws and infrastructure.
There will be lots of walking on lobby day, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
