Advocacy for improved bicycle access lanes, safety of the streets, and peaceful coexistence with motorists can be anything from letter writing to the mayor to direct action.
Columbike serves as a clearinghouse for bicycling concerns in the Columbus area, including advocacy issues.
Current Advocacy issues include:
Enhancing safety of bicyclists by-
1. Changing or eliminating archaic ordinances and adopting new ordinances.
2. Elimination or modification of physical factors that serve as a danger to bicyclists in Columbus such as removal of bollards (pillars) from the people trails, modification of Lindsay and Third street crosswalk into town.
3. Discussing ways to deal with vicious dogs causing bike crashes and bites
Advocacy may take several forms and we may employ some or several approaches simultaneously to best insure forwarding of our issues.
