Convergence means bringing together two or more distinct ideas, phenomena, markets, or institutions. By bringing together local governments, cyclists, and businesses, the Firefly Brigade would like to see, after 15 years of the Tour of the Fireflies--our flagship bicycle caravan--a convergence giving birth to positive action:
- where local governments will be inspired by the triumphs in cycling advocacy of their neighbor cities,
- where businesses catering to the cycling community will be provided more opportunities to build upon a thriving bike culture, and
- where thousands of cyclists will be energized by the creativity of other cyclists, the cycling-related products available to them and the bike programs of their local governments.
Remember to mark it now in your bicycling calendar:
