As most of you know, support for bicycle related programs dwindles every year even though the sport continues to grow. As a cyclist each and every one of us has felt this pressure while on a road ride hugging the shoulder for dear life, or on a last mountain bike ride before a trail is closed. It's a harsh reality of growth and expansion, but it doesn't have to be. Tim Johnson (@timjohnsoncx), a fellow Red Bull teammate of mine, organized the inaugural Ride on Washington in 2011 to raise funds for a program called Bikes Belong (@BikesBelong) and to help promote cycling as a whole before the National Bike Summit in Washington D.C.

This year Greg and I have been invited to participate in the entire ride, and help with the fund raising efforts. We will also be representing the Wood River Bike Coalition and participating as members of IMBA at the National Bike Summit in DC.  We are planning on listening, learning and speaking to the Idaho representatives about issues in our state such as the CIEDRA bill that threatens to close much of the Boulder - White Clouds to mountain biking.

I have a fund raising website to help Bikes Belong reach their goals, and I urge everyone to donate whatever they feel comfortable with. You can also follow the conversation and participate at the following sites:
