Action needed

Federal Transportation Authorization
Take Action!
Prioritizing biking and walking in our transportation system

Congress is preparing to draft legislation that will define our national transportation system for the next 6 years. We need your help to ensure that bicycling is a part of that system, a transportation system for the 21st century.

Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), co-chair of the Congressional Bike Caucus is circulating a "Dear Colleague" letter to his fellow Bike Caucus Members respectfully asking them to support increased federal support for establishing a truly multi-modal national transportation policy that better integrates bicycling and walking into our nation's transportation system.

We are thankful for Congressman Blumenauer's efforts on behalf of cyclists nationwide and urge you to contact your Representative, who is on the Congressional Bike Caucus, to ask them to join Mr. Blumenauer and lend their voice to this important bike-partisan debate.

Please contact your Congressional Representative today to urge them to sign on to Representative Blumenauer's "Dear Colleague" Letter.
