“We were meeting the real America, not the one you see in the news. If you haven’t already, you will fall in love with this country.” –Adventure Cycling member Bill Foreman on his 2017 TransAm ride
If you’ve spent much time traveling by bike, you’ll agree that America is full of good people. Strangers become friends when they offer a bottle of water, a place to camp on the lawn, or even a story about their own life-changing experience. These encounters remind us America is a place where you’ll find generous people and welcoming communities.
Support from Adventure Cycling members has helped build a more connected America by creating new bike-friendly routes, opening Amtrak to cyclists, bringing tens of thousands of new cyclists onto roads and trails, building an ever-larger official U.S. Bicycle Route System, and encouraging states, cities, and towns to become bike-travel destinations. Together we have done so much — but this coming year, we can do so much more.
