National Strategy Meeting on Rumbling

. . The League of American Bicyclists, the Alliance for Biking And Walking, and Adventure Cycling call for a National Strategy on dealing with safety rumble strips.  The Alliance is hosting a teleconference.  Click here to Register.
. . Although Bike Walk Tennessee has reached a reasonable compromise with TDOT on this matter, we must remain vigilant and engaged. Board Members have elevated this matter to these three organizations and insisted on their involvement.
. . Bike Walk Tennessee will be assisting TDOT and their contractor RPM Transportation Consultants in identifying routes important to bicycling.  Please visit our Web Page that provides instructions on how bicyclist can help in this effort.

  1. One of the things they suggest is to create a list of the roads we especially don't want rumbled. I can say I absolutely don't want them to rumble any road with less than four feet of useable remaining shoulder per AASHTO guidelines but that's not good enough anymore. Mapmyride works great for this. You can create an easily understood route RPM consultants can access. You can also place in the comment the reason this is a particularly bad road to rumble.
