National Mayors Ride

Aug. 2003: San Francisco, CA Mayor Willie Brown with Martin Krieg, Jim Muellner, and Jim Wetherell


What is the Mayors’ Ride?

Starting from big cities in all four corners of the US, with the blessings of the mayors in each of these municipalities, relay teams of National Bicycle Greenway (NBG) cyclists, as they move across America, will collect support from the leaders of 33 other large population centers. As these bicycle adventurers pass through supporting NBG Day cities they will receive proclamations in ceremonies ranging from fifteen minute certificate presentations to media extravaganzas that have included police escorts, newspaper, TV and radio interviews and hordes of photographers. Some have also seen displays and public speaking that celebrate advancements in the local two wheel way of life. To insure that these events will make for unforgettable celebrations, the National Bicycle Greenway has made available an easy to follow checklist for event planning. All this energy will converge on Chicago, IL on July 30 for the 3rd Annual NBG Bike Fest.

Why Mayors’ Rides

By underscoring the fun of cycling before local decision makers all across America, we are reminding them that the bicycle can help to solve many of the woes that automobile-oriented planning has brought upon us. As our riders use their Pocket Mailers daily to chronicle the conditions of the roads they travel on, to reach these celebrations, a real face is given to the cyclists in each of these areas. The efforts of those bicycle activists working to make two-wheel transit safer, and thereby more attractive for everyone in these areas, will also be showcased.


Our relay cyclists send their reports from the road back home with the handheld Pocket Mailer device.
