Bicycle Friendly America Summer 2018 - 31

leads up to the big Lobby Day on the
Hill, which was a bit windy and rainy. I
have been to the Summit once before,
so I was not brand new to the process,
and felt a bit more confident than previous times. It didn't hurt to be among an
amazing group of citizen advocates with
brightly colored bicycle pins on our collars, moving in a small herd through the
halls.
Our congressional representatives and
their staff were in tune, attentive and
helpful. It was apparent that transportation infrastructure will be key to this administration's way forward. We certainly
hope that safe walking and bicycling are
incorporated into long-term infrastructure considerations.
It was exciting to learn that day that
Nevada had just received a Tiger grant
in my hometown, Carson City, for a $7.5
million Complete Streets project. Since
my home organization, Muscle Powered,
worked to get the Complete Streets policy approved both at the city and the state
level, it felt like a dream come true to
me as a bike advocate. Now Carson City
has the funding it needs to complete its
downtown redevelopment to convert an
old freeway into a comfortable downtown
avenue complete with multi-use trails,
roundabouts, trees and green space.
Our work on the Hill must have paid
off, I learned later that the bike lobbyists' "ask" to support future funding for
the Tiger Grant was approved, at least in
early amendments.
Nevada's Silver State contingent left
Washington weary but happy after our
"day on the Hill." We look forward to returning again!
