This month we have been raising money for our Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. Campaign in support of the U.S Bicycle Route System. Since the kick off on May 1st, we’ve raised $126,873. That’s $1,873 more than our $125,000 campaign goal! Because the campaign has been extended until June 10th, we hope those of you who still want to donate will do so today, and help us raise even more. Help us surpass our original goal by donating today.

Hello! I am very glad to have just made a contribution to the US Bicycle Route campaign and that the time frame was extended. A few years back I had the great pleasure of meeting Ginny Sullivan and her family while my partner and I were participating with them in a Colorado bike trip. The trip was our first Adventure Cycling trip and it was a great experience in many ways. One of the highlights for sure was having the opportunity to meet and be inspired by Ginny. We had a really fun visit one evening while taking in the warm waters of the Glenwood Springs pool!
I hope I win a bike but, more importantly, I hope I meet Ginny and other AC folks and cycling advocates down the road on the US Bicycle Route!
Thanks for your great work,
