Bicycle Advocacy for the Miami Valley
Bike Miami Valley is all about making the voices of the everyday cyclists heard. Advocacy takes many forms – targeted campaigns and programs, contacting corporate developers, meeting elected officials. There is tremendous power in numbers. The common thread is looking out for local bicyclists – focused on your interests.
Bike Miami Valley strives to be the hub for regional cycling information. We want to get the word out about your upcoming cycling events, rides, and bike education. Contact us at least 3 weeks prior to the date and we’ll post your event for free on our website, Facebook page, and community calendar.
Bike Miami Valley is dedicated to creating fun and exciting events for bicyclists of all ages and skill levels. We are also interested in hearing your ideas. Become involved and get those creative juices flowing!
