New Contest, featuring Adventure Cycling Association!

Can you imagine a nationwide network of safe cycling routes?  Adventure Cycling Association is in the process of creating that, and they want your help to make it happen!

As we mentioned here, Bicyclinghub.com is in the process of giving away $1000 to the non-profit cycling organization of YOUR choice.  By going to this site and casting your vote, you help to determine which of three worthy organization will receive this donation.

This is the first in a series of three articles spotlighting each of the three organizations.

The mission of Adventure Cycling Association is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle. Helping cyclists explore the landscapes and history of America for fitness, fun, and self-discovery, Adventure Cycling Association is the premier bicycle travel organization in North America. Established in 1973 as Bikecentennial, the group serves 44,700 members nationwide and is  headquartered in Missoula, Montana.

Money awarded to Adventure Cycling through this grant will help continue to develop the U.S. Bicycle Route System.  The goal is to get more people out on bikes, raise awareness for the sport of cycling, but also to bring strangers together for the personal challenge and growth experience of a lifetime!

The proposed U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) will be the largest official network of bicycle routes in the world. We believe that the creation of new U.S. bicycle routes will inspire people to increase their bicycle trips and reduce motorized vehicle miles traveled. The USBRS promotes cycling as a sustainable and viable mode of transportation.

If you want BicyclingHub.com to donate $1,000 to the Adventure Cycling Association cause, be sure to VOTE on our Facebook page!  

The contest runs from now until September 14th, 2012.
