Today #DamienTalks with Ryan Price, Campaigns Director for CalBike, about CalBike's recently released legislative report card. 

Look up how your legislator did, here. Don't know who represents you in Sacramento? Click here.

In addition to scoring the candidates, CalBike produced some meme-friendly pictures with every legislator's score. In the interview we cover a couple of topics:

  • Why there appears to be a partisan divide on scoring, despite the reality that bicycling-friendly legislation seems to be gaining bi-partisan support.
  • CalBike's goals for the current "special session" on transportation going on right now.
  • And last, what to do if your legislator's meme-picture is a boring headshot instead of a cool bikeshot.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.

Thanks for listening. You can download the episode at the Damien Talks homepage on Libsyn.
