The Wisconsin Bike Fed’s Council of Advocates was formed in 2021 as an advocacy initiative that aims to bring together voices from each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties to advance biking priorities throughout the state.

Discussing the wants, needs, concerns, and opportunities for cyclists in each community, Council of Advocates members help us gain a better understanding of current issues and how we can work together to create better biking for all of Wisconsin.

We are still looking for a volunteer member from the following counties:

  • Buffalo
  • Lafayette
  • Rusk
  • Chippewa
  • Manitowoc Filled!
  • Taylor
  • Douglas
  • Menominee
  • Trempealeau
  • Forest
  • Oconto
  • Washburn
  • Kewaunee
  • Pepin
  • Wood

Advocates meet virtually each quarter to discuss biking needs, concerns, and opportunities in their communities … and Bike Fed facilitates turning those conversations into advocacy and action throughout the state! This year, our focus has been on influencing state legislators during the biennial State Budget process to support cycling and transportation alternative needs in Wisconsin. Please visit our website to read more about some of our advocacy actions in 2023 such as our “Letters to Legislators” campaign and our Advocacy Day in Madison back in March. 

Our remaining meeting dates for 2023 are as follows: 

  • Thursday, June 1st, 2023; 4-5 PM
  • Thursday, September 7th, 2023; 4-5 PM
  • Thursday, December 7th, 2023; 4-5 PM

As a cyclist and trails user, you understand the importance of infrastructure and education that make cycling for transportation and recreation safe and fun. The Council of Advocates has been created with the goal of having at least one volunteer representative from every Wisconsin county to exchange ideas on cycling goals, challenges, and needs.

Interested in joining the Council?

We hope you’ll consider contacting Government Affairs Manager Collin Mead at collin@wisconsinbikefed.org for details on how you may attend the next virtual meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 1st.
