Here is a 1, 2, 3 recap of the first days of the Build it. Bike it. Be a part of it. campaign for the U.S. Bicycle Route System:
This great video by the Path Less Pedaled gives you even more information about what the USBRS will mean for cyclists across America.
So far USBRS supporters have contributed $5,000 toward the $100,000 goal for the U.S. Bicycle Route System. We still need $30,000 to meet a $35,000 1:1 match from a group of generous donors. Help us meet that match by donating today.
If you donate today before 5pm MDT (that’s 7pm eastern) you will be entered in our sweepstakes to win a Park Tool AK-37, 37-piece toolkit with a retail value of $369.99 from J&B Importers.*
By donating today, you will provide the financial support necessary to continue developing routes and preparing them for designation by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
