There is no question there is a tremendous amount of information that the 130+ organizations on this list could use from well established groups like Bikes not Bombs and the Community Cycling Center.  The question is, what do we have to offer them?
At a minimum it would be good to interview some of the longer standing members of each of these organizations and figure out what hard decisions they had to make and what the out come was.
One thing I have observed with some of the larger organizations is that they went more in the direction of a traditional non-profit.  I would be curious to find out if it started out that way, or if that was an active choice.

So, BNB, are you out there? Lemme know.
I'm curious why BNB isn't present on the Think Tank or at Bike Bike!  I can think of some other groups like the Community Cycling Center in Portland.  These are groups that are way more established than most of us and have a lot to offer.  I think the communications we have here and at Bike Bike are what makes us a movement and these more established groups should be part of our conversations/discussions.

How can we get these groups involved?
