Please take a minute to support Rails to Trails & other projects.

Congress it getting close to voting on a bill that would stop funding for Rails to Trails and other pedestrian related projects. You can fill out a simple form and send an email to your congressman here. You can also read more about it at the same link.

Done ... Thanks for posting this. They just recently (after a too long hiatus) restarted construction on our local rails to trails segment. In addition to it being nice to ride on, it really has been an economic boon for the community. I'm really hoping they don't stop now.

They just completed paving the second 4 mile stretch of trail in my county. The county I live in is one of the poorest in the state. The locals have really started to jump on board as far as using and enjoying the trail. There are more and more people using it all of the time. Safe place for families to take the kids out and ride without traffic buzzing by at 60mph.

So if your reading this.. Please spread the word and pass the link around.... You never know ONE more email just might do the trick or turn the tide...

Jay......

Voting on an amendment that will keep funding for trails and other programs is going to be voted on soon. Please take another minute to write your rep urging them to vote for this amendment. It is pretty painless and only takes a minute...

Thanks.....

Please join me in asking your senators to support the Cardin/Cochran and Klobuchar amendments to fix the Senate transportation bill as it relates to funding trails, walking and bicycling. This issue is far too important to ignore. Please take a minute to speak up now.

To take action on this issue, click on the link below:
