Bikers Inside The Beltway National Lobby Day - Update

The 5th annual Michael "Boz" Kerr Bikers Inside The Beltway being held on Thursday May 16th, 2013 in the Nations Capitol, Washington D.C. is approaching. Free motorcycle parking has been secured by the Motorcycle Riders Foundation just steps from the U.S. Capitol Building.

  • 9:00 am - 11:00 am: Arrival, registration, instruction and lobby material pickup, meet at motorcycle parking on 3rd street, link to map below
  • 11:00 am - 1:15 pm: Lobby your Federal Elected Officials
  • 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm: Congressional Program with invited Congressional speakers Location: 1539 Longworth House Office Building
  • 2:30 pm -?: Continue lobbying

The MRF encourages you to schedule appointments with your Representative and Senators during the lobbying hours. Continue to schedule your appointments, as the calendar will fill up on this busy legislative day.

Plan your appointments according to your arrival time. As an example if you plan to arrive promptly at 9:00 am you can schedule meetings anytime from 9:45 am until 1:00 pm without conflict with the program that begins at 1:30 pm. If you plan on arriving at 11:00 am at the latest then you can schedule meetings from 11:30 am until 1:15 pm and of course after the Congressional Program.

Confirmed Congressional speakers include Representative Tom Petri, Chairman of the powerful House Transportation Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.

In addition, the United States Congress has just reformed the Congressional Motorcycle Caucus (CMC) for the 113th Congress. To celebrate this both of the current Co-Chairs will be addressing the riders attending the lobby day. Congressman Dr. Michael Burgess of Texas and Congressman Tim Griffin of Arkansas will both be delivering remarks during the Congressional panel.

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 appointments, or any other general lobbying questions you may have.

The MRF has secure free parking from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm just steps from the US 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. A map can be found HERE:
