The court has denied our Motion for Rehearing. We are evaluating the options regarding the appeal to the Florida Supreme Court on the specific issue at hand, but have been advised that less than 5% of such petitions are granted, so we don't want to get our hopes up. This does not undo, however, the great strides we have made to date. Notwithstanding, the cycling community now has the responsibility to go forward and to make the court's opinion mean something more than the paper it is written on.

We'll be in touch soon.

This set back does not negate our need for funding. Please keep those checks and credit card transactions coming. Checks are better because they save FBA credit card fees, but both methods are greatly accepted. The easiest way to donate to this very important campaign is to go to the "Join FBA" link on the FBA homepage. Complete the membership form and reference "FDOT Appeal" in the "Comments" section. Enter a dollar amount if a preferred amount isn't listed. Complete the transaction using a credit card or print the form and mail with a check to FBA, PO Box 718, Waldo FL 32694. ALL MONIES RAISED FOR THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BE FORWARDED TO AKERMAN SENTERFITT to support the case.
