Build the USBRS with BOB Gear

May 28, 2013

We’re in the last week of our annual Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. campaign to build the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS).

So far this month, USBRS supporters have donated $108,628 to create this national network of bicycle routes.

Right now your donation can go twice as far! BOB Gear by Britax Child Safety, Inc. believes in the mission of the USBRS so much, they’ve decided to sponsor another $1,000 match challenge. So donate now to have your contribution matched 1:1.

If you donate today, you will also be entered to win a Raven or Raptor 6 pack from Osprey.*

BOB trailers are pretty popular here at Adventure Cycling headquarters.


Here's Tours Director Arlen Hall with his BOB trailer just off the Great Allegheny Passage Trail
in Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania, eating an orange popsicle after climbing a 4-mile 8% grade.


Long-time staffer Mac McCoy always brings along a BOB when he rides the
Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. Mac and BOB are also the new cover models for
the 2nd edition of 
Cycling the Great Divide, due for release sometime this fall.

Membership Director Julie Huck doesn't leave home without a BOB.
