“The Friday Forum series had good innovative thinking, provided a big picture view of issues, and allowed people to think outside the… car.” – Friday Forum participant

Pedal with Politicians

Over the last several weeks, some of your Tacoma City Council Members biked around Tacoma to get up close and personal with the existing (and missing) bike and trail networks in Tacoma. Since we can’t gather in person for a bike ride and discussion, we’ll be adding their rides and stories as a Pedal with Politicians video blog series here, so you can see the routes and neighborhoods that your elected officials traveled, and get more familiar with infrastructure and opportunities for bike advocacy.

The best way to advocate for bicycling in Tacoma is to get out and ride. And the best ways to encourage our local government to better our roads for people on bikes is to virtually ride “alongside” them, and send them your feedback about bike infrastructure and access throughout Tacoma!
