Bicycle Advocacy groups are popping up all across the United States. It seems to be the new trend in alternative transport initiatives. Most of you should know that the Wisconsin Bike Fed is one advocacy group that has been around the longest. For almost 26 years, the Wisconsin Bike Fed has worked to lobby for cyclists rights, help create the Safe Routes to School program here in Wisconsin, and have hosted a plethora of outreach events to communities throughout Wisconsin. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. We could spend hours talking about all the work that the Fed has done for this state, but we’ll spare you.
The Wisconsin Bike Fed wants to continue to grow. They want to offer more to their members and they want to continue to improve upon all their years of hard work and dedication to the state of Wisconsin. That’s where the Strength in Numbers Campaign comes in. The campaign is a way for current Bike Fed members to take to the streets and encourage other cyclists and non-cyclists alike to join the organization.
The incentive based program allows members to share sign up information online. In the applications there is a referral area where new members can give credit to the member who encouraged them to sign up. For each member you sign up, you get an entry to win either a brand new Trek FX 7.1 flat bar road bike or a Trek X Caliber mountain bike. Get 5 new members and you not only get 5 chances at winning that sweet new bike, but you also get a limited edition pint glass!
The person who signs up the most new members wins an awesome Door County getaway package including dinner at the famous goat topped restaurant, Al Johnson’s! Not to mention a one night’s stay at the Scandinavian Lodge and TWO entries to the Door County Century.
