Join us on Tuesday, December 6th at 6pm for our virtual MassBike Annual Meeting. Tune in to learn about all the bike-friendly work MassBike did in 2022 with our coalition partners and catch up with advocates from across the state. The formal agenda will include a legislative update with some bike-friendly champions, a look into our Worcester E-Bike Program, and more. The evening will conclude with short break-out sessions to allow for small-group conversations with fellow better bicycling advocates. RSVP below today- we look forward to seeing you on December 6th.
The 2022 Annual Meeting will include...
Massachusetts was named the #1 Bike-Friendly State by the League of American Bicyclists– our one ding was lack of state legislation. However, this was a big year for bike-friendly initiatives on Beacon Hill. MassBike Executive Director, Galen Mook, and MassBike Board Member, Kristen Sykes, will co-host a panel with two of our legislative champions on Beacon Hill.
Representative Dylan Fernandes (Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket)
