BIKERS INSIDE THE BELTWAY 2021 ATTENDANCE EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS
“Sold out” are not words often positively associated with anything in Washington, D.C. Bikers Inside the Beltway 2021 is rapidly closing in on being booked up. The hotel block of rooms has been expanded to accommodate those attending Bikers Inside the Beltway in person.
With less than a month to Bikers Inside the Beltway, now’s the time to take action to ensure you do not miss the Motorcycle Riders Foundation’s premier lobbying event.
Bikers Inside the Beltway 2021 will be dual focused. Some congressional offices are taking meetings with constituents. However, the House and Senate buildings are not open to the general public, meaning the only way you can get in is if you have an appointment beforehand and staff comes down to security to get you. As much as attendance at Bikers Inside the Beltway is important, getting our message to members of Congress via district office visits or virtual visits is just as important, hence the “dual focus” on this year’s event.
Make appointments with each member of Congress from your state before traveling to Washington. Each member may have different guidelines for meetings. Unlike years past, roaming from office to office is prohibited.
Off-site meeting may be available. There are a few coffee shops on Capitol Hill. However, be prepared to defer to a staff member’s guidance when confirming appointments and locations.
The motorcycle only parking the MRF has obtained in the past is still an uncertainty. Do not allow that to deter your visit. The hotel is less than five minutes from the METRO line and a 14 minute METRO ride to the Capitol. The mission is to get our message to Congress.
With funding the infrastructure a priority, the language that the MRF amended into the 2020 highway funding legislation has not changed. The MRF’s 2021 High Priority Objectives are on track to be included in the upcoming version of any highway funding legislation.
The dual focus approach to Bikers Inside the Beltway has all the components of year’s past. Our briefing packets and “leave behinds” are updated and available.
To ensure that the mission of getting our message to Congress does not fail, here are a few items to consider:
Yes, the MRF will welcome all attendees as we move forward to ensure that Bikers Inside the Beltway is successful. Whether it’s dual focused with meeting in your local districts or in Washington, D.C., remaining focused, flexible, and diligent will contribute to making Bikers Inside the Beltway successful. See you in Washington, D.C.!
