Meet Bonnie Winslow, a volunteer for the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) in Oklahoma. Bonnie has been working feverishly to designate U.S. Bike Route 66, which will follow the corridor of one of America’s most historic roads: Route 66. Working in partnership with Adventure Cycling, the proposed route for USBR 66 aligns with the same roads being mapped for Bicycle Route 66, which will be released by Adventure Cycling next year.
With the launch of our newly redesigned website last month, we also improved the functionality of the "My Adventure Cycling" account system. Your account allows you to manage your Adventure Cycling Association information, submit a trip to our Ride Registry, as well as offering more streamlined submittal of map corrections.
We have had an amazing response so far this month to the Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. campaign to raise funds for the U.S. Bicycle Route System. Your gift can still do double-duty. We are only a few dollars away from meeting the Cascade Bicycle Club match challenge, which we have to meet by midnight tonight. And, if you donate today, you'll be entered to win a SERFAS bike case from BikeFlights.
