Here’s some more bad news regarding the bill that was released by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Wednesday. There is a section of the bill that will create a mandatory side-path law on federal lands. The next actual vote or action on the bill may not be for several weeks when it reaches the Senate floor – so an on-line petition has been set up by the League of American Bicyclists to show outrage to this potential law.  A petition gives America Bikes Coalition the flexibility to “deliver” it at the most opportune moment. More action on other parts of the bill will also follow.

Read the League’s blog post about why the side-path law is a terrible step backwards for cyclist’s rights and then sign the petition. It’s fast and easy.
