Driftless Region Bicycle Coalition Supporters,

The DRBC would like to start by thanking you for your past support.  Everyone who rides knows getting more people on bikes more often makes better riding. With your help, we intend to continue that mission.  

A couple of ways you can help us is what you have done in the past, giving time helping at events and monetary support. The other is free of both. Follow us via the websiteemail or Facebook. We need to know you are there! Please send us your name or like us on Facebook so we can add you to our roster of cyclists who want a better bicycling environment here in the Coulee Region.

Here is what DRBC has been doing for the bicycling community this last year from October 2012 to October 2013:

Presently we are working on artistic style bike racks for the arts district in La Crosse, expanding bicycle recycle programs and creating events year round to help you ride, even in the winter.

 

The coming years in the bicycle community are looking pretty exciting. All around the US and the world people are looking back at the humble bicycle as a viable form of transporting themselves and cargo. Cities are seeing how the infrastructure for bicycles is a fraction of what it costs to accommodate an automobile and how cyclists tend to support more local business. People are starting to realize that their car is taking a very large chunk of their income. I personally like having an extra $9100 (AAA national average cost of ownership) in my pocket every year. Just having an extra $200 a month from not buying gas is pretty nice.

Riding bicycles helps save you money, makes you healthy, connects you with your community and put a smile on your face. We believe in ‘More People on Bikes More Often’.

Please help us continue our mission.
