Show Support for Connecticut Ave Protected Bike Lanes

This action is no longer active. Please visit our action center for current actions you can take.

We’re sure you’ve heard the bad news– Mayor Bowser has chosen to move forward with redesign plans on Connecticut Ave NW without bike infrastructure. 

The good news? We’re not going down without a fight. Join us in speaking out and showing up for a street made for people– that doesn’t threaten our lives and community for more parking and unsafe driving. 

We recognize the urgency to act in this moment, and we need you. Make sure you sign our new petition, share it with your friends, and join the broader biking community in solidarity.
