USA Cycling and Bike Law, a network of independent bicycle attorneys in the U.S., announced a partnership that will provide all USA Cycling members with cycling-related legal assistance.
“This partnership aims to provide leadership on cycling legal issues,” said Bike Law founder Peter Wilborn. “USA Cycling is uniquely positioned to be a strong voice and advocate for the sport of cycling, and Bike Law will give the organization, members and clubs the legal tools and know-how to do so.”
Bike Law is not a law firm, but a growing national network of independent lawyers who are cyclists, and cycling advocates. Since its founding in Charleston, SC in 1998, it has grown to include lawyers representing cyclists and promoting cycling in 22 states and Canada.
“This is a double-win for USA Cycling members,” said USAC CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall.
“Bike Law’s national network provides a place for our members to turn in the event they require cycling-related legal assistance, and our community can now better drive cycling advocacy efforts with a partner who is uniquely knowledgeable and passionate about cyclists’ rights and cycling safety.”
