Your Impact on Iowa Bicycling
The final thing to mention is how much of a role you have played in bicycle advocacy. We look forward to sharing with you how these events grow bicycling AND play a role in funding our advocacy work at the legislature, policy advancements at the DOT, and putting more kids on bikes with our Safe Routes to School Program. When you bicycle on Iowa’s trails or roadways, you want an enjoyable ride taking you safely to your destination. We work to make Iowa bicycling safe, accessible, and enjoyable for all.
