Help BikePGH deliver 1,000 hand-written letters to the Mayor!

From the BikePGH blog and newsletter…
In 2010, the City of Pittsburgh installed about 5 miles of bike lanes and sharrows, mostly in East End neighborhoods. These lanes were a welcome addition to the emerging city-wide bike lane network, and showed that the City was serious when, upon receiving the “Bronze Bike-friendly Community” status, Mayor Ravenstahl proclaimed that there will be “25 miles of new bike lanes and sharrows in two years.”
We want to make sure this momentum continues, so we decided that we’d deliver to him a bunch of “Thank You” notes to demonstrate how much support Mayor Ravenstahl has for his bike initiative, and how bike lanes have positively impacted the lives of thousands of Pittsburghers.
We want you to write or draw fun, creative responses on our kinda boring form letter on how more bike lanes will change your life. The idea is that hand-written letters are more effective than emails, form letters, and post cards, so write-away!
