Cyclists petition AAA
The petitions of some 51,000 bicyclists were delivered to the Orlando-area headquarters of the American Automobile Association today, asking AAA to support continued federal aid to building paths for walking and bicycling. The petition campaign, organized by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, follows the efforts by AAA's Mid-Atlantic branch to oppose bicycle facilities in and around Washington, D.C. It's notable that 33,000 of the petition signers are AAA members. For more on the campaign, visit Rails to Trails.
