Joining the cacophony of wants bouncing at Prez-Elect Obama's ear is a request from the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to consider the pedestrian, and the cyclist, when he puts together that economic recovery package during his first days in office.

The package, says the RTC, is expected to devote vast funds to car-centric road projects. Well, howzabout throwing some of that scootie the wheeled/tennied folks' way? Eh?

RTC is circulating a petition , which says:

I support explicit funding for trails, walking and biking in the upcoming economic recovery package. Funding active transportation is a cost-effective investment that creates jobs and leads to healthier people, stronger communities, decreased oil dependency, and reduced climate change emissions.

Thanks Tim Daniels with the Bigfoot Bicycle Club.
