I received this notice today:

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has received word that a devastating attack on trails, walking and bicycling could happen this week.

Though we do not know details yet, we anticipate a congressional amendment that could do away with or hobble programs like Transportation Enhancements (the nation's largest funding source for trails, walking and bicycling), Recreational Trails Program and Safe Routes to School. Therefore, we are working with many other organizations to defeat such a damaging amendment.

No action is needed on this front today; we just wanted to give you a heads-up to expect an action alert from us in the coming days.

If it comes, please do not delay in speaking up: If such an amendment is offered, we might have mere hours to respond.

Thank you in advance,

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy


We are going to need to be vocal and active to PUSH our politicians to do the correct, healthy and green thing for us citizens!

We can use a little Walking Like Egyptians here in America! Let's not take this without a fight for what we know is right!
