Action Needed: Current Trail Advocacy Campaigns
This thread will attempt keep up to date on trail advocacy campaigns currently requiring action.
It's worth noting that behind there scenes there is pretty constant stream of lobbing by riders and their supporters. Many people do a lot of work on this, which inevitably leads to some government or local authority department putting out some plan or strategy or policy document for public comment.
This is where you come in: Without public support for such documents, all the work in the background to persuade authorities to get this far will have been for nothing!
Your support usually only takes a few minutes. The usual way would be to write a simple, sometimes even one line email to support the published plans. Sometimes completion of an online form. Sometimes just a couple of clicks to vote in a poll.
Please take a moment of your time to review any current action threads below and write/email/call/whatever best you can to do your part.
After all - these campaigns are for better trails for you and your fellow riders.
