Cascade Bicycle Club’s work to educate riders and improve bike safety and infrastructure goes in vain without elected leaders who share our values. They make the laws; they hold the budget strings. That’s why it’s critical that we work to elect pro-bicycling candidates to office. Join us Tuesday, Sept. 27 for a trivia night and party in support of BikePAC.
Every election year, we work to elect bike-friendly candidates who share our vision for communities with safe, connected bike routes that make it possible for anyone to ride for transportation and recreation. In 2010 we supported 50 candidates with contributions from BikePAC. We built an alliance of lawmakers who helped us pass the Vulnerable User Bill this spring. This election season, you can help us support more leaders in cities and towns from Spokane to Bellingham who will help achieve our mission - RSVP today for the BikePAC Trivia Night and Party.
Cascade Bicycle Club can’t help but put a fun twist on the typical fundraiser. Last year, we handed out enviable prizes — like Ortlieb bags — for people who guessed answers about our political advocacy, and the competition was fierce.
This time, we’ll have a full round of bike-themed, pub-style trivia mixed with politics and pop culture. So brush up on your bike knowledge and gather a team of your geekiest friends this year for BikePAC trivia. There’s bound to be a prize for the best team name in case you think your bike nerd knowledge isn’t quite up to snuff. At least come for the drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and of course to help elect our bike-friendly candidates.
Here’s a teaser question to get you on the right track:
What bike-powered cabinet secretary in the Obama administration was disappointed that, for security reasons, the Secret Service would no longer allow him to burn off energy on the way to work?
