Wattie Ink's partnership with Bike Law was born organically as we all recognize the importance of being able to ride our bikes safely on the roads. It's not an uncommon occurrence to experience a punishment pass, close call, or worse while celebrating the joy and freedom of a life on two wheels. Whether we ride professionally, recreationally, or as our primary mode of transportation, the pursuit of cycling justice and promotion of a social change movement that demands better, safer, sustainable cycling for all who ride are things each of us can do to leave the world better than we found it and drastically improve the time we're here.
The Bike Law Foundation's Ambassador Program is accepting applications for 2019 through Friday, October 26th. Please consider applying and joining this boots-on-the-ground national advocacy group whose making strides towards significant cultural improvements for people on bikes. Bike Law believes in and is committed to inclusivity and hopes to continue their success as a comprehensive cycling resource with the help of those who share in their passion and dedication to the cycling community.
As part of the ambassador program, you get to rock one of the amazing Bike Law Foundation/Wattie Ink. kits that you see in this post and our video, below. It's the same kit that Heather Jackson rocks in her training when she wants to rep Bike Law, and you'll be proud to be in her company. "I'm out on the roads, riding my bike every single day, training to race against the best triathletes in the world," says HJ. "This is my livelihood. It's my job, and yet every day I'm putting my life at risk. I've had close calls with distracted drivers, and have numerous close friends who have also had close calls or actually been hit by a car. When I found out about Bike Law, and all the work they're doing for athletes who have been hit, advocate for legal changes, provide support to victims, and generally increase awareness around all the issues between motorists and cyclists I was totally on board."
