From 1981 to 2017 - the U.S. Bicycle Route System has come a long way in 36 years. Adventure Cycling Association is the only organization dedicated to coordinat...ing development of this national network, and we couldn't do it without our many local and state partners, as well as American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). Thanks to all our partners and supporters! https://goo.gl/006yPf

SAVE THE DATES: The Erie Downtown Partnership held its annual meeting this morning, and announced the dates and locations for this summer's block parties. New this year: the block parties will take place in our downtown parks, where the City and other partners have invested heavily in outdoor improvements. Local establishments will still serve as block party hosts. Note that the August 10 date coincides with the Lake Erie CycleFest weekend, and our special Slow Roll ride with an emphasis on Erie's cultural assets. That ride will end in Perry Square for the block party!

SNEAK PREVIEW: You know that crazy clown car gag--the one where more and more people get out of a tiny vehicle than you ever thought possible? One of the group rides during the Aug. 10-13 Lake Erie CycleFest weekend will feature a uniquely Erie variation of this, but on bicycles and without the creepy clown costumes. Stay tuned to learn how you can participate!
