Perfect weather for a bike ride . . .

A call to action:

I received this today from the League of American Bicyclists:  

Contact Your Governor
Tell your Governor to Build Bicycle and Pedestrian facilities with Economic Recovery Funding:

Congress set aside funding for the transportation enhancement program, which funds bicycle and pedestrian projects.  However, they also gave states a time limit. States must identify which projects they want to fund, and to obligate the funding to those projects.
 
If states do not do so, they will have to give back the money.
 
CALL or WRITE your Governor now to ensure that important bicycle and pedestrian projects get built, and the funding is not wasted.
 
On Monday, March 2, 2009, America Bikes sent each of the Governors a letter requesting they obligate their transportation enhancement funding in a timely manner.  
Now we need you to follow up:
 
CALL your Governor now to ensure that important bicycle and pedestrian projects get built, and the funding is not wasted.
