Capital Trails Coalition

Tuesday, September 1, 2020
Potomac Pedalers is excited to announce we recently joined the Capital Trails Coalition. The Capital Trails Coalition is a ”collaboration of public and private
organizations, agencies, and citizen volunteers working to advance completion of an interconnected network of multi-use trails for metropolitan Washington, DC.” Their vision is to “create a world-class network of multi-use trails that are equitably distributed throughout the Washington D.C. metropolitan region. The regional trails network will transform public life by providing healthy, low-stress access to open space and reliable transportation for people of all ages and abilities.” 
 
We will be serving as an advocate for the Coalition by sharing the work they are doing and promoting advocacy opportunities with our members. 
 
For more information on the Coalition please see their website at https://www.capitaltrailscoalition.org/trail-projects/. Additionally, please see this recent article in the Washington Post ( https://tinyurl.com/y2l5syad) which details the plan to double trails in the region to 1,400 miles. This will bring access to a trail within a half-mile of 4 million DC-area residents.
