Sign Our Petition Supporting Trail Building in 2014

Have You Signed the Circuit Petition?
When complete, 50% of our region will live within 1 mile of a Circuit trail

More than 2,000 people have affixed their name to our petition calling for funding and supporting trails in our region. Will you join them? We especially need signatures from trail supporters in New Jersey.

Connecting the Circuit is one of our most critical and ambitious campaigns. We are a leading member of the Circuit Coalition, the group working to connect the Greater Philadelphia Region with a world-class network of biking and walking trails (the Circuit).

Imagine getting on your bike and being able to ride all day, uninterrupted, on dedicated car-free bicycle and pedestrian paths. Imagine biking from Bartram's Garden to Longwood Gardens, from Collingswood to Center City Philadelphia, or from the Perkiomen Trail to Pennypack Park. That's the vision of the Circuit - a 750 mile network of trails spanning 9 counties.
You could start here and end up in Haddonfield or Newtown, all without leaving dedicated trail.

We want to build a green highway system, connecting our neighborhoods to jobs, to shopping centers, to parks and rivers, and to each other. In 2014 we will be holding critical meetings with regional funding sources, asking them to dedicate money to build miles and miles of trail. We want to show the depth and breath of popular support for trails, from every corner of the Greater Philadelphia Region.

If you support this vision, add your name to the petition. Thank you!
