Thank you for your signatures in support of making Staunton a more bike-friendly community!
Now, it’s time for action — and CAKE!
Tomorrow (5/23) is the big day! We need you to show up, in person, to voice your support at the City Council meeting. All you need to do is show up at City Hall at 7:30. You are welcome to speak but not required to do so. Then, there will be an after-party with cake here at George Bowers. (Oh, and, it’s also my birthday!)
Brian and I started George Bowers Grocery because we strongly believe in walkable, livable downtowns. We are both biking enthusiasts, too. In fact, this summer we will join several members of RideStaunton.org and will bike across Iowa!
We believe making Staunton more cyclist friendly will do a lot of good, especially if you only consider one aspect: the ability to strengthen our local economy. Here’s a great .pdf showing how other states have benefitted from being bike friendly. We’re in it for long haul and know you are, too. Harrisonburg and Waynesboro are doing great things in support of biking. Staunton shouldn’t be left behind.
(If you haven’t signed yet, there is still time! Head here or to one of your other favorites: Black Dog Bikes, Turtle Lane, Staunton Creative Community Group, Rule 42, The Dragon’s Hoard, Sacred Circle, or Staunton Antiques Center.) Signing is wonderful but what what we really need is for you to show up tomorrow.
See you tomorrow at City Hall!
