Only a month ago, they were at 60,000 pledges. They've nearly doubled in the last 30 days --that's major momentum! Did you know that in the past six months since PFB first launched...
- Lance Armstrong, mountain bike legend Gary Fisher, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, and basketball-great Bill Walton have signed the pledge;
- PFB has traveled with New Belgium Brewing Company's nationwide bike-festival, Tour de Fat, and participated in other bike events in Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis, Denver and other cities to collected pledges;
- More than 1,000 Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, and coast to coast have gathered hand-written pledges at their sales counters;
Help them get to 200,000
Do you have any friends/family/coworkers/landlords/long-lost college roommates/pizza delivery guys/pets (ok, maybe not pets) who like to ride bikes, but haven't signed the pledge yet? Tell them today. If each of us got one person to sign the pledge this weekend, we'd double the size of our movement. Whether they cruise around the block once a year, or commute by bike to work every day, PFB wants to unite their voice with a million others to make bicycling in America safer, more convenient, and fun for everyone.
Track their progress
You can follow our continued progress toward one million names on the PFB homepage with the interactive pledge tracker -- even see how your state is doing compared to other states. Riders from Georgia were psyched to be able to track how their state stacked up in the pledge count. They've been on a mission to get as many Georgia pledge-signers as possible, and moved up from rank #47 to #9 in ten days! Think your state can do better? Rally local riders you know to join in this friendly competition by signing the peopleforbikes.org pledge. In the end, we'll all benefit with a bike-friendly America.
