Budget cuts are threatening to close Sacramento's American River Parkway, the main east-west bicycling transportation route in Sacramento. According to Save the American River Association, "if funding is cut as proposed, this 5,000-acre jewel, the literal heart of [Sacramento] County, will rapidly tarnish, become unsafe and ultimately unusable by those of us who go to the Parkway to exercise, experience nature, gaze, reflect and refresh ourselves." A key budget cut meeting is scheduled for March 9.
