@Rider Ron sent me a reminder about this email from the AMA. It deserves all of our attention!

Thanks Ron for the reminder!!


Ask your representative to support America's scenic byways

National Scenic Byway Program preserves some of motorcyclists' favorite roads



Please urge your representative to support H.R. 5158, which would direct the Secretary of Transportation to reopen nominations for the National Scenic Byways Program, which has been closed for six years.

The American Motorcyclist Association was part of the coalition that helped created this program in 1991 and is part of a group now hoping to revive the program. Many of the country's favorite motorcycling roads are National Scenic Byways and benefit from the resources provided to preserve and enhance them.

From the Blue Ridge Parkway, stretching from North Carolina to Virginia, to  Beartooth Highway, running between Montana and Wyoming, to Hells Canyon in Oregon, there are 150 designated National Scenic Byways. The program provides resources that help communities along these byways benefit from the tourism they generate, while preserving the characteristics of the roads that made them destinations in the first place.

According to a recent survey, there are 44 state scenic byways in 23 states that are prepared to seek designation as National Scenic Byways if this legislation passes and the nomination process is reopened. The Federal Highway Administration has stated that reopening this program would not require any additional funding-it simply requires approval from Congress!

Thank you in advance for contacting your representative on this important issue.
