Bike Routes and the Like.

USBRS_Landing_PageU.S. Bicycle Route System: Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It!
Donate $10 today to support the creation of a national network of bicycle routes: the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS), a visionary project that will be similar to the national and international systems blossoming across the globe, such as Euro Vélo.

Routes will connect cyclists across the U.S. with cities, transportation hubs, scenic and historic destinations through existing (and new) infrastructure; routes will be numbered, mapped, and officially recognized by state and federal government agencies.

When complete, the U.S. Bicycle Route System will be the largest bike route network in the world!

More than 40 states are already working to implement U.S. Bike Routes — donate today!

I realize this is a little out of date, but this is an important initiative that Adventure Cycling Association and The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials are diligently supporting and developing. I saw that ACA had raised $50,000 this year for the USBRS and that AASHTO is providing support, in this way – “Transportation officials across the country from local to state levels are responding to the demand for bicycle infrastructure. AASHTO believes in all modes of transportation. From roads to rails, water and bikes, we are committed to all forms of transportation. We embrace the multi-modal approach, and want to assist agencies planning for multimodal travel.” (taken from http://blog.adventurecycling.org/2012/12/the-aashto-bike-guide.html#.UOHb0G_g18E)

As a cyclist, I can wholeheartedly support this initiative – and when the fund drive comes around this year in May, I will be contributing!! Hopefully, you can too.

Support this group – they are doing good things for cyclists!!!
