Did anyone catch the Sunday Nevada Appeal? Bicycles ALL over the front page! There are interviews with the bike shop owners Rob, Dan, and Dennis, an interview with Muscle Powered’s president Anne Macquarie, and even a couple pictures of myself with a nice interview! I expected these stories to be buried deep within the paper somewhere, getting little notice. Good job Nevada Appeal!
Here are links to the Nevada Appeal articles:
I really do think that cycling is on the rise in Carson City! I just met a guy named Jesse that lives in my neighborhood. He’s been commuting since the spring, and I must have been missing him everyday by 5 minutes. I’ve started riding home with him recently, and when I wait for him near my office, I see many cyclists cruising the streets. This is very encouraging, and will hopefully put a little pressure on the city to provide better bicycling infrastructure. We’re off to a good start, but much more needs to be done.
Another great thing about these stories in the paper, is that we got some great advertising for the Clif Bar 2 Mile Challenge! Hopefully we’ll have some flyers sometime today.
Update: A couple more links from the paper!
