Let’s be honest: I have found that the Cleveland Heights Bicycle Coalition could be a full-time job, because there’s so much to do to encourage and facilitate bicycling in our city! Fortunately, lots of people embrace this cause and want to help.
Why is the bicycle coalition important? As I explained in a Heights Observer article in the May 2011 issue, having a lot of bicyclists is a sign of a city that attracts creative thinkers and young professionals seeking vibrant, sustainable communities in which to live and work. After all, bicycles are a perfect mode of transportation for those who are concerned about the environment, their health or their pocketbook. In addition, bicycling can make one feel good physically, and depending on oneself to get around can feel empowering.
I and others have posted many items on the Cleveland Heights Bicycle Coalition’s Web site – www.bikesintheheights.org I invite you to take a look at this Web site. I think you’ll like what you see!
