"If you cycle in the Hudson Valley, you'll be interested in this issue. Route 299 leading west from New Paltz to the Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park is slated to become a NYS Touring Route. Unfortunately, the Shawangunk Scenic Byway opposes upgrading the road to meet state safety standards for cyclists. The reason? Doing so may degrade the 'viewshed' for motorists.

Ulster County officials need to hear from you on the importance of improving safety on this critical cycling road. For contact information, a sample letter, and talking points visit:"

I know of several NYCC members (including me) who will be sending letters regarding this. The website Doug listed above makes this very simple to do. Please consider sending a letter. Thanks, -Jeff
