Thanks to You, America Is a Great Place to Bike!

November 8, 2017

Did you know over one third of this year’s annual Bike Travel Weekend participants had never been on a bike overnight before? Over 2,500 cyclists became bike travelers in just one weekend, thanks to our members.

Every year, as a member, you make bike travel better. You provide a way for people across the country to connect and experience America from the saddle of a bike. You make it possible to keep every mile of the 46,846 Adventure Cycling Route Network up to date. You keep our advocacy team out on the road, collaborating with departments of transportation, state and national parks, and small town businesses to make cycling a better experience. You enable us to dedicate time and resources to expanding the U.S. Bicycle Route System (This year we welcomed the 25th state with a route!) You make it possible to create new routes like the Chicago to New York City Route, with two ways to ride between two of America’s biggest cities. You make traveling by bicycle safer and more accessible than ever.

Because of our members, America is a great place to travel by bike.

Help make it an even better place to connect and travel by bike when you donate to making 2018 another amazing year. Mark your calendar for a worldwide annual day of giving, November 28, 2017, #GivingTuesday.

Or, you can donate right now.
