Support Streetsblog This Month and You Could Win a Bike!

Loyal readers, it’s that time of year again: We’re reach out to our most important supporters — you — to help power our work building a strong voice for the national livable streets movement.

This year we’re giving away some really cool prizes. Supporters who give $50 or more will be entered to win a Specialized hybrid bike, courtesy of Bicycle Habitat. The winner will pick between these two beauties:

More importantly, your donation will help produce reporting, commentary, and videos in support of streets that work for people, not cars.

Here at the Streetsblog Network, we’re plugged in to hundreds of local bloggers who help us spread the word about innovations in livable streets and sustainable transportation — wherever progress is happening. We also strive to tell stories about communities at critical stages in their fights for safe streets — places like Lee County, Florida; Fort Worth, Texas; and Cleveland, Ohio. And we’re taking on the misguided souls near and far who promote free parking and other subsidies for cars, creating hostile environments walking, biking, and transit.

With your help, we’re linking people across the country into a lasting national movement for transportation reform and healthy cities. If you find our work valuable, please make a tax deductible donation to help us raise $60,000 between now and December 31st.

Thanks so much!
