On the other hand, I knew that the president of AAA had made some remarks that were not very supportive of our national trail system and the funding to support those trails.
I decided to call AAA and speak with someone about this issue. And I'm glad I did. I found out that AAA is actually supportive of multi-modal transportation. And Colorado AAA, in particular, is very supportive of bicyclists and trails.
So I decided to renew my membership. I'm not saying this to convince any of you to join AAA, but just to let you know what I found out when I contacted them. If anything, I'm trying to convince you to become an active advocate for our system of trails in the United States. If you hear of someone bashing trails or bemoaning the funding for trails, confront them. But get the facts first. I'm glad I did.
