"When I ride my bike, I feel carefree, confident, and just plain happy, no matter the reason I happen to be riding. I support the US Bike Route System because they promote universal cycling, and are doing the things needed to make cycling safer and more accessible, so that everyone, no matter who they are or where they are, can experience the fun and the joy of cycling."
-Cindy Homan, USBRS supporter
