You'd Better Reconize

What do April, Sioux Falls, the Twin Cities, bicycling and the Plain Green Conference have in common? Read onward.

Today our local daily is reporting that Bicycling Magazine has selected my happy little city as the 31st Bike Friendly City in America. This being the first time Bicycling Magazine has recognized Sioux Falls.

That’s some pretty nice recognition, especially following the recognition a few months ago from the League of American Bicyclists.

Our friends up north in Minneapolis are celebrating their #1 placing on Bicycling Magazine’s list. First! - a northern city like ours with 9 months of winter.

This month the Twin Cities Metro Magazine recognized Bike Walk Twin Cities as one of their best bicycling advocacy organizations. In fact, on the magazine’s list of 8 “bike-friendly projects you need to know about” 6 are being funded by Bike Walk Twin Cities.

Here’s the link…in April, opening the Plain Green Conference is Steve Clark. He’s the Bicycling and Walking Program Manager, in charge of Bike Walk Twin Cities.

He’s the #1 guy at the #1 bicycling advocacy organization in the #1 bike friendly city in America.

Not bad!

I wonder which of the Sioux Falls bike advocates will be at the conference?

That reminds me, I need to set up the welcome reception at Monk's.

The official Plain Green After Party is also slated for Monk's. Bike out.
