Cedar Falls: On to a bike friendly city.

Quite a few people rode over to the meeting at Lincoln school.
More bikes were on the other side of the building.

The representative from League of American Bicyclists was on hand
to facilitate public input to make Cedar Falls streets more bike friendly and livable to all.
Safety first is the main consideration.

They ran out of name tags.

Brent Johnson, owner of Bike Tech, is interviewed by KWWL.

Doug and Mike use different colored markers to indicate routes they use
& what are the dangerous streets.

The small tables of people gather in three large groups
to consolidate the routes that need high priority.

Isn't this great or what? Input to action.

Bob Kressig, also a biker, is one of several elected people that attended.

Stay tuned as the city and the Mayor's Bicycle Task Force, LAB and others
work together to make our city safer,
encouraging people to go green, perhaps saving some green
and having some fun by not canning themselves up in a car.

Take care,
