Support the Bicycle Commuter Act! Send a (ready-made) letter!

Fellow Cyclists,

The Bicycle Commuter Act has been reintroduced in both houses of the US Congress. This legislation would provide bicycle commuters with tax benefits similar to those enjoyed by transit riders.

The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) has provided a web page with ready-made, editable letters of support:

All you have to do is enter your name, addresss, and zip code, and a letter will automatically be sent to your congressman and senators. You may edit the letters or write your own if you wish.

Please take a moment to do this.

Also, please forward this information to other listservs, newsgroups, and web forums.

Thank you for your support!
