The Wisconsin Bike Fed is our statewide bicycle advocacy organization. You can access their home page here and read more about what they are all about here.
I will use this page to keep Poky Pedalers informed about current activity from the Bike Fed. I encourage all Poky Pedalers to stay informed about the Bike Fed and to consider participating in their events – especially those events that can help make Stevens Point a better place for Bike Fun.

Bike Fed Events
I will use this space to keep you informed about events that the Bike Fed puts on or is otherwise associated with. Some of these events will be in the Stevens Point area, and some will be in other locations.
Wisconsin Bike Summit – The 2014 Wisconsin Bike Summit took place in Madison on Friday October 10 at Edgewood College. This was an all-day event put on by the Bike Fed with sessions on a variety of topics related to several aspects of bicycle advocacy.
This year, among the usual collection of informative and inspiring presentations, PPSP spoke as part of an afternoon session entitled Community Rides: Biking for Everyone. I spread the word to statewide bicycle advocates that Bike Fun is an effective way to get more people on bikes more often.
