A lot of good happened for local cyclists and pedestrians on Kansas City streets in 2014.
This summer, the city’s bike share system, Kansas City B-cycle, doubled in size, with eight new stations in the Country Club Plaza and Westport. Thousands of area kids learned bicycle safety from the proven BLAST youth bicycle course in 17 elementary schools throughout the region this year.
And more recently, Kansas City, MO and Lee’s Summit passed a Safe Streets Ordinance, protecting hundreds of pedestrians and cyclists from harassment on city streets.
BikeWalkKC was behind these and other exciting projects — but we couldn’t have done any of it without you. Now that we’ve got momentum going towards a better city for bicyclists and pedestrians, we’re ready to grow it in 2015 — with your help.
What kind of impact could you make?
If each of our members gives $50, we would instantly have $25,000.
But it doesn’t stop there — with that amount, we would be able to leverage $125,000 in Federal funding to make our programs go even further — five times further.
Your gift of just $50 would become $250 to help make Kansas City’s streets better for the city’s bicyclists and pedestrians.
In 2015, BikeWalkKC is ready to bring new bike share stations to KC’s streets, more lessons to area students, and more change at City Hall.
