IMBA Going after Rand PaulSubmitted by EGhost57 on Fri, 07/26/2013 - 13:15
The IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) is going after Rand Paul for wanting to cut funding for alternative transportation.
IMBA has learned that U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is planning to offer an amendment that would strip funding for the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), a vital source of support for thousands of trail systems across the United States.
As someone who believes that I should pay for my own hobbies, I firmly support Rand Paul on this and oppose the IMBA.
As a mountain biker, I'm appalled that the IMBA would be actively campaigning to take tax payer money from people who will never in their lives ride on a mountain bike trail. and I let them know by sending them a letter.
If you are a mountain biker, or even if you are not, please contact IMBA here: http://www.imba.com/contact
and contact the League of American Bicyclists here: http://www.bikeleague.org/content/staff
and let them know that you disagree with taking tax payer money for the funding of personal hobbies.
