We need to realize that we cannot sit and wait for the Government to support our cause. If it is not going to give them significant benefit that will serve to maintain or increase the Governments control or power over us it will get little attention.

We donate to several bike trail groups and I assist in maintaining one of the local trails. We cannot become dependabnts on Government.

I agree 100%.
If anyone ever had doubts about joining a bicycling advocacy
group this should be your wake up call.
If anyone is interested (and you all should be) you can
find state advocacy groups (not just US either) at

Probicycle.com
