Mandatory Sidepaths Relegate Bike's to Sidekick Status, Sign the Petition

The S. 1813 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act requires cyclists on Federal lands to use a path or trail, instead of roads, if the speed limit is over 30 MPH and a trail exists within 100 yards, regardless of its condition or utility of the path. What does that mean? It means bikes are being pushed into the margins and off the roads.

Bikes have every right and reason to use the roads we have in place, more so than the cars really.

Please go and sign the <a href="http://www.bikeleague.org/petition/">League of American Bicyclists Petition</a> even if you aren't a cyclist, you almost certainly have friends or family that does ride a bike and wants to be treated like everyone else on the road.
