Help save our cycling riding routes from rumble strips

Help save riding routes from rumble strips.

USA Cycling has joined in an appeal with the League of American Bicyclists, Adventure Cycling Association and the Alliance for Biking and Walking to jointly request state departments of transportation to re-issue existing rumble strip guidelines in order to protect cycling routes.

Cyclists and motorists share a desire for safer roadways. Most of us are motorists as well as cyclists and we have probably all benefited from the wake-up call provided by rumble strips on the Interstate or major state highways. However, as cyclists we also know that there is no such thing as a bicyclist-friendly rumble strip, and over the years a lot of good roads for riding have been lost to rumble strips.
