Give to Streetsblog and Streetfilms and You Could Win a New Bike

It’s that time of year again, readers: tinsel, latkes, long lines, good cheer — and our earnest hope that your spirit of generosity will inspire you to donate to Streetsblog.

And if generosity doesn’t do it, maybe self-interest will: thanks to our friends at New York’s  Bicycle Habitat, everyone who gives $50 or more online will be entered to win a new Specialized hybrid bike. The lucky winner will choose between a Sirrus or a Vita. Feast your eyes.


Reader donations help Streetsblog and Streetfilms produce reporting, commentary, and videos in support of streets that work for people, not just cars. From changing trends in travel behavior to the latest scoops about what Congress has in store for transit, biking, and walking — you get the news you need on Streetsblog.

Next year will determine whether the setbacks in MAP-21 will be temporary, or whether they’ll be further entrenched by the next authorization. The new committee chair in the House says he plans to introduce a bill in early 2014. That means the ground game starts now.

Your tax-deductible gift in any amount will help us bring you the story as it unfolds, keeping you informed so that you can make your voice heard.

As always, we’ll be keeping our fingers on the pulse of cities and states around the country, where policy makers directly shape the future of our streets, neighborhoods, and regions. We’ll tell you who’s been naughty, who’s been nice, who’s expanding transit, and who’s building sprawl.

We dream about this stuff, and we know you do too. We’re grateful that you’re reading Streetsblog, and we look forward to a great, muckraking 2013.

But we can’t do it without your help. Please make a tax-deductible donation today to support our coverage and help us meet our goal of raising $60,000 by the end of the year.
