We don't either.

 

A group of veteran bicycle riders and advocates started the Safe Streets  Political Action Committee to endorse and support candidates. We helped some winning candidates and now we want them to make this a safer city for biking and walking. 

 

Our Endorsements

 

Every politician I know claims they are supportive of biking and walking in Nashville but we need more than talk.  Help us out today with $20, $100 or more. 

The goal of the Safe Streets PAC is to raise funds to donate to candidates who deserve our support. Every donor will have input into our endorsement decisions whether you give $20 or $1,000.

WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP. GIVE ALL YOU CAN AFFORD TODAY.

Not Convinced?    Contact Us.

Safe Streets PAC is registered with the Davidson County Election Commssion and is in compliance with all applicable state laws.

Carey Rogers, Treasurer  Tom Grose, Chair.

Think that local politicians listen to  bicycle riders?

Who Owns Our Greenways?

 

 

Metro Parks is currently conducting a survey about the use of e-bikes on Nashville Greenways. E-bikes limited to 20 MPH are allowed on greenways by Tennessee law since 2016.

 

 

E-bike Survey

 

 

 

The survey is part of a study that came about because of backlash against the return of BCycle utilizing e-bikes. Some elements of the community are opposed to e-bikes on greenways even though they are an important part of the transportation system.

 

If Nashville is to have a truly multi-modal transportation system then greenways must be open to all bicycle riders. The Cooper administration requested rental e-bikes be provided by Bird, Spin and Lime, the companies that currently rent scooters.

 

We need you and everyone you know to respond to the survey with your support of e-bikes on greenways. Many people do not understand that e-bikes are not mopeds or motorcycles. (If that includes you feel free to contact me for more information). 

 

E-bikes are expanding bicycling to groups that would not otherwise ride bikes, senior citizens, commuters,  the physically challenged and families with children.  I won’t bore you with all the talking points in favor of e-bikes but please fill out the survey and support bicycling in Nashville.
