This post is based on an announcement from the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) passed along by a local Bicycling in Greensboro representative to the North Carolina Active Transportation Association. I added some links and explanations below.

Please go to the link below now (at least before Oct 1) and complete the survey. Not all of it is aimed at us of course:

American Tobacco Trail gets some press from Sunday's News & Observer (Raleigh)

The article can be found at http://www.newsobserver.com/2766/story/1001947.html

It speaks to cyclists on the ATT exclusively, but hey, that's active transportation in NC too, right?

I'm sensing that winter hibernation is pretty much over.

WUNC Covers Human Powered Transportation, Fear, Safety, Exercise, Health, Biking, Walking and (Silently) Skating

I don't know if anyone heard this live, but WUNC had a piece on about bicycle, pedestrian and other human powered transportation issues (OK they said people powered) today. The piece mentioned the American Tobacco Trail, Durham and Raleigh, and efforts to improve safety, since it seems to be the common thread among those who'd "like to" but don't.... Here's the page...
