Last Friday we kicked off our 6th Annual Build It. Bike It. Be a Part of It. campaign and the beginning of National Bike Month by previewing what’s to come: the latest news on our efforts to grow the U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) to 10,000 miles (and more!), chances to win incredible giveaways, and inspirational stories and photos of creating and cycling what will become the largest official bicycle network on the planet!
Supporters like you will help us reach our goal to raise $150,000 this month for the USBRS. Take a look at how much we’ve raised and make your contribution today >>
This week, we’re kicking things off by profiling our country’s incredible national and state parks—places where exploring on two-wheels is the very best. To celebrate, we’re giving away two National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands annual passes! Learn more and donate now >>
This week, you’ll read about the top success stories from our Travel Initiatives staff, who for the past two years have made important inroads in creating solid partnerships with both the National Parks Service as well as state parks. And pull out your calendar, because 2015 and 2016 are packed with exciting opportunities to get out and explore these scenic places by bicycle.
Please donate today to support more U.S Bicycle Routes through our national ands state parks! Right now, we have a 1:1 match so that your donation can travel twice as far. Plus, you’ll be entered to win one of two Annual parks passes for any donation you make this week.
Thank you all for your support!
