WWBPA Joins Groups to Thank LaHood

WWBPA joined hundreds of groups from around the country in signing a letter of thanks to U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood for helping to make bicycling and walking an important part of the department’s policy. Many bicyclists and pedestrians joined Secretary LaHood at DOT headquarters in Washington, D.C. at the start of ?the Memorial Day weekend to present the letter.

Secretary LaHood noted, “…?making walking and biking safer and more accessible is relatively inexpensive. For example, we could upgrade the entire 2,250 mile?East Coast Greenway, a network of bike routes stretching all the way from Key West to Maine, for only one-fifth the cost of a single recent I-95 bridge over the Potomac.”
