Execs from Accell, ASI, Bosch, REI and Shimano meet with Congress
Executives from Accell, ASI, Bosch, REI and Shimano flew to Washington D.C. last February to meet with members of Congress to discuss the economic benefits of cycling. It was the fifth executive meeting since the program was launched.
Chris Speyer Speye, CEO at Accell North America, described the Fly-In as
a great opportunity to bring the perspective of bicycle business to the conversation around federal transportation investment.
The group focused on their support for the upcoming multi-year federal transportation bill reauthorization. They expressed that the next transportation bill should reflect 21st century transportation priorities, including bike-friendly infrastructure. Original story for Bicycle Retailer by BRAIN Staff.
