Thank You for Signing the Bicycle Master Plan

Dear [Decision Maker],

Thank you for signing the Bicycle Action Plan, and for showing a clear commitment to reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and cars. I write to you as a citizen of Los Angeles and a member of Global Green's Climate Citizen Initiative. I am doing what I can in my own life to reduce my carbon footprint, but I realize it will take the collective voice and effort of all Angelinos to create lasting, significant change to address the impacts of climate change. That's why I am thrilled that you have approved the biggest and most farsighted boost for bicycling that the city has ever seen.

As you know, cars are the biggest contributors to air pollution and greenhouse gases in Los Angeles. According to the Coalition for Clean Air, every day in California, drivers burn 47 million gallons of fuel and create 5.4 million pounds of pollutants. One of the quickest and most direct ways to decrease the amount of pollutants that come from cars is to get more Los Angelinos into alternative means of transportation, such as bicycles.

By signing the bicycle master plan, you are showing your commitment to making this a reality with more than 1,600 miles of bike lanes and better bicycle infrastructure. In addition, you are sending a message to the rest of the world that Los Angeles is doing its part to stop climate change. But we also know that the plan--while a significant success that required extensive collaboration with many stakeholders--is only the first major milestone. It will take years of dedication and significant allocation of resources on the part of the City to make the plan a reality.

Thank you again, and I look forward to following this issue through the coming years.

Sincerely,
