Time for a little activism once again

Congress need its periodic dope slap from the cycling public as yet another transportation bill comes forward with funding for bikes and pedestrians deleted. Take a minute for some clicktivism and send your representative this handy canned petition from the League of American Bicyclists.

Just as the weather seems to grab a little something from every season, so does the climate for bicycling seem to fluctuate wildly between salubrious and harsh. No matter what your interests in the world today, no one is on a mere mood swing anymore. It's a mad roller coaster that's being built even as we're riding it. Climbs turn into drops while you're on them. It zigs insanely from right to left, left to right, up, down, with the maneuverability of a crazed insect.

Anyway, give a click, pledge your life, your fortune and your sacred contact information and see how it goes.
