The California Juggernaut in The Congressional Bike Caucus

Out of the 53 California representatives, 24 belong to The Congressional Bike Caucus.

Founded by Rep. Earl Blumenauer, the Bike Caucus’ mission is:

To provide Congressional leadership in complementing the efforts of the millions of cyclists actively working for safer roads, more bikeways, convenient bike parking and increased recognition of the importance of cycling for transportation and recreation.

Closer to home, Rep. Susan Davis representing the 53rd Congressional District, and Rep. Bob Filner representing the 51st Congressional District are both members of the Bike Caucus.

On August 29th, 2009, Rep. Davis will be attending the Green Jobs Forum here in San Diego. The workshop will be held at 3910 University Ave., San Diego, CA 92105. Rep. Davis has been asked to address increasing transportation investment for non-motorized transportation. We hope that she will do so and thus ensure that San Diego becomes a world class city for bicycling.
