You are doing a bold thing by advocating for Iowa bicycling. It is our hope that this guide will make you comfortable and ready to be a strong advocate.

This guide has been developed to help advance bicycle advocacy in Iowa. Many bicyclists want to get involved, but don’t know what to do or how the system works. In order to advance better bike policy, we need effective advocates who are familiar with the legislative system.

Bicyclists will be able to use this guide to contact their legislators along with other elected officials and know what to say when they talk with them. Advocates learn about the legislative process and how to navigate it in order to advance better bike policy.
