US Bike Route showing no signs of growing pains [via Fast Lane]

From the Fast Lane blog:
In my latest "On the Go" video and in a blog last week, I talked about how bicycles are not just for recreation, but also for transportation.  Today, as schools across America are letting out for summer vacation and families are making travel plans, I want to remind everyone that you can use your bicycles for both transportation and recreation on our U.S. Bicycle Route System.
And I'm happy to report that, since I blogged about our nation's interstate network of bicycle routes last summer, the Association of American State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has approved the first new routes for the system in more than 30 years.
