Squeaky Wheels is member-powered. It's through the collective action of individuals like you that we have achieved success in the years since we first began meeting in 1994. The voice of Bainbridge Island cyclists is more effective when we sing together. Come join the choir and help to make Bainbridge Island a truly great place to ride a bike. By joining Squeaky Wheels you help demonstrate that the constituency of bicyclists on the island is large and growing. As an advocacy organization, Squeaky Wheels we can make a strong case to politicians and others that hundreds of people share a common vision for a community that puts a high value on getting around on foot and by bicycle. Join our team today by making a contribution online via PayPal or by sending a check (payable to Squeaky Wheels) to the address below. We'd love to have you on board.
