BENEFITING: BIKE WALK CONNECTICUT INC
I grew up on an island, and a bike meant freedom as I could ride into the big city of Portsmouth, NH. I'll never forget the feeling of freedom of riding across the causeway into town. Today, I live in West Hartford CT and am a daily commuter to my job in Hartford. Truth be told, I still get that same feeling of freedom everytime I get on a bike, even when its 10 degrees out. I'm looking to raise $750 for BIke Walk CT, our only statewide organization focused on making CT a better (and safer) place to bike and walk. I'm on the Board of Directors, and We do some pretty awesome things that you can see directly, like our Discover CT Tours http://www.bikewalkct.org/discover-ct-ride-series.html (Expanding in 2016!), our bike education programs http://www.bikewalkct.org/bike-education1.html, and our BIke to Work Programs http://www.bikewalkct.org/bike-to-work.html. Equally important, we work with active transportation advocates across the state to help advocate for changes in policy and law to make CT a better and safer place to ride. http://www.bikewalkct.org/past-advocacy-work.html If you ride cycles or walk in CT, please help support us with our end of year fund drive!
