Rose wanted to get this message to Ligonier. Thanks, Rose!

Dear Rose, 

As you know Pennsylvania is a great place to bike and walk. 

Many of our cities are bike- and pedestrian-friendly — and the vast networks of trails are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and go about your daily trips. 

In fact, 12 percent of all trips in the state are by bike or by foot — yet there is no dedicated state funding for these programs! 

Now, you can help ensure that our state continues to invest in these “active transportation” networks as the Pennsylvania House of Representatives considers the state transportation budget. 

Take action now: Urge your State Representative to adequately fund dedicated funding for bicycling and walking.
