Thanks to You, Bicycling wins big in SAFETEA-LU! $612 million for Safe Routes to School! $370 million for Recreational Trails! $893 million for Transportation Enhancements. This is just the beginning of the major prizes the America Bikes coalition has won in the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act-Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), signed into law by the President on August 10th. See for the unfolding analysis of exactly what bicyclists and pedestrians won and lost in this voluminous law. America Bikes did well because of you. Thank-you for your generous financial contributions and for taking the time to call, write and email Congress. Your action multiplied by support throughout the country ensured that bicyclists were heard on Capitol Hill. We realize this was a long drawn-out fight, but we didn’t lose focus. The results are definitely worth the effort and could not have been achieved without your support – thank-you! All of our efforts are helping build a consensus in Washington DC that bicycling is an important part of the mainstream transportation agenda. It is vital for our future that we maintain this momentum. So please be sure to thank your Representatives and Senators for their support during the passage of SAFETEA-LU. We have a great deal still to achieve, but let them know we are grateful for the progress made by SAFETEA-LU and we look forward to working with them in the future. And remember, when America Bikes, America Benefits! The America Bikes team
