Done! The letter has been sent

In the wake of Katrina, I told you of a letter I was sending out to links in my sidebar to see what I could learn about efforts in the cycling community regarding assistance in the recovery efforts, including helping other cyclists, cycling organizations, and shops.

I also was looking for any stories, good, and bad, about cycling in the regions affected.

This also now includes the aftermath of Hurricane Rita.

My task was completed this morning, and now I will wait, and see.

So far 1 organizaion responded, as chronicled in an earlier post.

Also so far, disappointingly, the League of American Bicyclists, Rails to Trails, and the Congressman who leads the Congressional Bicycle Caucus, have yet to respond.

They were among the 1st to receive my letter.

I was pleasantly suprised to see how few of the tons of e-mails were innactive, and that bodes well for anyone in the areas of these clubs, and organizations, who wishes to contact them for whatever reason.

I am just a humble blogger, and an ordinary cyclist, who is working, during his spare time, to make this site a place where other cyclists can find interesting stories, news, rides, information, and links.

It appears it's going to take some work to make those more involved in, and knowledgeable, about cycling, and cycling advocacy, aware that someone like me is out there, and interested in spreading the word, as he gains more knowledge himself, and that I can be a useful resource, and ally.
