Friday Roundup – Bicycle Bits & Pieces

  •  The League of American Bicyclists has initiated an Action Alert to help stop Senator Rand Paul’s amendment to last year’s Transportation Bill that diverts all alternative transportation funding to bridge repair -which, according The League, is not a big enough amount to really help with bridge repair, and only hurts the efforts our cities and towns have made towards safe transportation alternatives. Use their easy form to tell your representatives how you feel about Sen. Paul’s amendment.
