Our legislative efforts are vital in ensuring that cyclists have a safe and enjoyable experience on Iowa’s roads. With your support, we can continue to promote and advocate for important bike-friendly initiatives and legislation.
We urge you to donate to our legislative efforts today at www.iowabicyclecoalition.org/gives.

Every dollar counts and will help us make a difference in our communities.
Our priority bike bills, including SF16, SF207, and HF586, are essential in promoting accountability, safety, and education on the road. Here’s what each bill entails:
SF16: This bill aims to establish standard penalties for traffic crashes, ensuring that drivers who harm cyclists or pedestrians face appropriate consequences for their actions. By passing this bill, we can create a more equitable system where all users of the road are held accountable for their actions.
SF207: This bill seeks to ban the use of handheld electronic devices while driving, reducing distracted driving and making our roads safer for everyone. By reducing distractions, we can create a safer environment for all road users, including cyclists.
HF586: This bill would establish crosswalk protections for pedestrians and cyclists, requiring motorists to yield to them. By passing this bill, we can help ensure that cyclists and pedestrians are protected and valued on Iowa’s roads.
By donating to our legislative efforts, you can help us lobby for the passage of these bills and ensure that cyclists are protected and valued on Iowa’s roads. Thank you for your support and dedication to promoting a more bike-friendly community. Together, we can make a difference and create a safer and more enjoyable experience for cyclists throughout Iowa.
