Creating a connected culture of cycling support and confidence throughout the Monadnock Region.  “ I ride for my health. I love racing through the woods. I like to be outside as much as possible. I ride to spend time with my family. I feel like I am helping the environment. I simply love to ride. I look forward to spending time riding with friends. My bicycle is my primary mode of transportation. There are a thousand reasons to ride. What is your reason not to?  I am here for you and want to hear from you.  Let’s pave the way for more bicycled miles in our beautiful region.

MoBikeFed comment: The international Bicycle Mayors program could be an interesting way to approach bicycle advocacy in Missouri--particularly in our many medium-sized and smaller suburban and rural communities but in the larger cities, too. It emphasizes the power of one passionate individual to develop consensus in the community and create real change.
