Bikers Inside The Beltway National Lobby Day - The Most Important Day of the Year for motorcyclists.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is pleased to report that the 6th annual Michael “Boz” Kerr Bikers Inside The Beltway will be held Thursday, May 15th in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation will have secure, free motorcycle parking just steps from the U.S. Capitol Building.
Last year’s event drew hundreds of motorcyclists from across the country. Don't miss out on the greatest gathering of politically active motorcyclists in Washington, D.C. This really is the most important day of the year for motorcyclists. With the Obama administration angling for mandatory helmet laws, this year’s event could not be more integral to preserving motorcycling, as we know it.
From 9:00 am to11:00 am is arrival, registration, instruction and lobby material pickup meet at thr motorcycle parking on 3rd street (a link to the map is below).
This year’s Congressional speakers are Senator Jean Shaheeen of New Hampshire and Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. Senator Shaheen is the sponsor of S 2078 the bill to end the funding of motorcycle checkpoints. Senator Johnson is the number one co-sponsor of this important legislation.
The Senators will be addressing our group at 2:45 in Senate Russell Building, room SR-188. Please arrive early to ensure a prompt start.
The MRF encourages you to schedule appointments with your Representative and Senators offices.
Plan your appointments according to your arrival time. If you plan to arrive promptly at 9:00 am, you can schedule meetings anytime from 9:30 am on. If you plan on arriving at 11:00 am at the latest, then you can schedule meetings from 11:30 am until 2:00 pm, and of course after the Congressional Program.
Should you not be able to get an appointment, plan on dropping by as many offices from your State as you can during that time. Feel free to contact the MRF office with any questions about scheduling or otherwise.
Unfortunately the House of Representatives will not be in session the day of our event. The meetings with staff still carry significant importance. The Senate will be in session that day.
The MRF has secure, free parking from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm just steps from the U.S. Capitol and the House and Senate office buildings. The exact location of the parking is on 3rd Street SW and NW between Madison and Jefferson Drives.
