I enjoy biking and I really enjoy multi-day biking adventures. The trouble is finding good routes that are safe and fun. The US Bicycle Route System (USBRS) under development helps create routes that interconnect the whole US. It utilizes existing trails, roads and helps build new infrastructure. It interconnects urban, suburban, and rural areas, historic sites and bike trails. It opens the whole US up to bike adventures.
On multiple occasions I have lead scouts on a four day bike trip. It gives them a chance to accomplish an adventure that seems impossible at first. 225 miles by bike! When you ask scouts about their scouting adventures they often say that the bike trip is one of the best adventures they did in scouting. The difficult part about this adventure is not biking, it is creating a good safe route. The USBRS will significantly help with route planning no matter what direction you want to travel.
The USBRS is not just a bunch of bike paths:
Google “Bicycle Touring” and you’ll learn about traveling around the state, around the country or around the world by bicycle. When you travel at about 15MPH you get to see a LOT more of this country. Instead of zipping by so many small communities you get to stop and enjoy their community. You get to partake in local festivals, eat at the local cafes, visit tourist attractions and generally get a chance to meet the people of America.
How will the funds get used?
