Some folks associated with MoBo Bike Co-op in Cincinnati are trying to
put together bicycle advocacy resources into a sort of advocacy
toolbox. Our goal is to produce something that could be used to equip
or incite community members to do advocacy work/build community around
I'm curious if any shops out there like ours have produced anything
like this, and could share advocacy resources/ideas they have used.
Those of you who do advocacy work of any kind: what
resources/documents/actions do you use? Are community projects,
specifically co-ops, producing anything of their own or simply
borrowing resources from traditional advocacy organizations/clubs?
In the spring we'd like to begin doing some off-site advocacy
"workshops"- essentially group events with cyclists and community
members who aren't currently connected with our shop community in
which we'd provide resources and/or trainings on topics like 'how to
organize group rides', 'advocating for better bike laws and planning
in your community', 'encouraging new riders', etc.
Any resources, ideas, tips you could pass along would be
