Do you blog about biking in your region? Perhaps you're the webmaster of a site about trails or hiking groups? Or maybe you do some writing for your local paper about active transportation, or lobby for new bike infrastructure in your city?

Introduce yourself to me at jake@railstotrails.org, and I'll add your contact info to a new email list I'm building of Bloggers, Amplifiers, Advocates and Writers—a community specially designed for sharing the latest news and info about trail development and active transportation across America.
