Rails-to-Trails Conservancy delivers petition to AAA - 51,376 signatures

Right now, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy President Keith Laughlin and dozens of cyclists are at the American Automobile Association (AAA) headquarters in Heathrow, Fla., to deliver our petition that includes your name in support of trails, walking and bicycling.

Your name—along with 51,376 others!

Yep, you read that right.

Today, more than 51,000 Americans—including more than 33,000 AAA members—go on record to call on AAA to support the continuation of crucial federal programs for trails, walking and bicycling.

Today, you have made a powerful statement that trails, walking and bicycling are part of our transportation future.

Today, you have voiced your support for clean, affordable, convenient travel options that save us money, improve our health and add to our quality of life.

For all of this, and so much more, we thank you.

In the coming days, we will send you more details on the petition delivery, including photos and videos of the day’s events. But for now, we just want to thank you for your overwhelming support.

With gratitude,

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
