URGENT! Email your U.S. Senators today to preserve bike funding

We have just learned of this potential devastating bill, which could effect bicycle transportation, and saftey in the Grand Valley, Colorado, and accross the United States. Click here and take action!

Federal funding for bicycling is under serious attack. Today or tomorrow, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma will introduce an amendment to eliminate dedicated funding for Transportation Enhancements, which is the main source of funding for bike projects of all types. We need you to take action today by emailing your U.S. Senators to urge them to oppose and defeat Mr. Coburn's amendment.

If Senator Coburn's amendment succeeds, bicycling in the U.S. will become less safe and more difficult. Twenty years of consistent, cost-effective investment in beneficial bike projects will stop.

After you take action take a minute and check out People for Bikes, join their list, and help their cause. Be sure to send this email to other interested folks.
