2022 Connectors

It’s no secret — the political atmosphere in Wisconsin is a challenging one to navigate. After spinning our wheels on legislative initiatives that were deemed polarizing or not worth the time of the legislature, we knew we needed to make a change.

How can we engage our elected officials in a way that won’t be viewed as partisan or politicking? How can we demonstrate that whether you sit on the left or right side of the aisle, a love for Wisconsin’s outdoors – especially via two wheels! – is universal? We needed to find the answers to these questions in order to advance cycling throughout the state as well as our advocacy efforts at the Capitol.

Looking Through a New Lens: Connectors & Connections

The answer came through exploring new lenses through which we look at how we can further our advocacy outreach and legislative goals. We need to connect on a personal level with our legislators, and we need to show the value constituents hold for cycling throughout the state. With these objectives in mind, we have coined a new outlook we’re calling Connectors & Connections — an opportunity to prioritize the connectors that cyclists in our state enjoy, the connections between Bike Fed and Wisconsin cyclists, members, and elected leaders, and the relationship-building opportunities both of these avenues have when pursued in tandem.

Under the Connectors & Connections mind frame, we have identified key connectors — projects — that are important to cyclists from every corner of the state, and pinpointed invaluable connections — people — at the advocacy, government, and business levels to advance our collective goals for Wisconsin cycling.
