Day 265: AAA wants Congress to cut funds that support cycling, walking, hiking

24 09 2010

If you’ve ever considered becoming a member of an eco-friendly automobile association similar to AAA, now’s the time to make the switch. I saw this today from the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy:

The American Automobile Association (AAA) wants Congress to cut funds that support trail, biking and walking programs in order to funnel that money to the highway system. AAA has forgotten that bicyclists and pedestrians drive, support AAA, pay gas taxes and want balanced transportation systems that provide the choice to get around in a variety of ways.

Here’s what AAA had to say.

Several years ago, we switched from AAA to Better World Club. I talk more about it here in a post back in April, but we were looking for a company who provided coverage for bicycles and who would be concerned with the environment. We found Better World Club and after doing some research, decided to make the switch. We’ve not yet had an opportunity to put their services to use, but just knowing our money is going to a socially-responsible organization who also offers bicycle support was worth making the change.

Today’s food journal:

— Fat free Greek yogurt = 2 points
— 1/2 cup granola = 2 points
— 1 banana = 1.5 points

— Grilled cheese sandwich on wheat bread = 7.5 points
— Baked Lay’s potato chips (about 10) = 1.5 points
— Iced tea = 0 points

— 1 apple = 1.5 points
— Weight Watchers brownie = 2 points

Life’s a journey. Enjoy the ride!
