KCMO Councilman Russ Johnson bicycles to work

Kansas City Missouri Councilman Russ Johnson, chair of the city's Transportation Committee, bicycled to work Wednesday.

Later that day Mayor Funkhouser & Johnson held a press conference announcing that Kansas City is aiming for Platinum level Bicycle Friendly Community status by 2020.

MoBikeFed Board Member Eric Rogers took this photo, which is Johnson in the city parking garage at his assigned parking spot--with his bike (he's the 2nd district councilman "in district" vs. the other 2nd district councilman who is "at large"--thus the sign).

Earlier this week Representative Talibdin El-Amin bicycled to work from his home in the St. Louis area to work at the Missouri House of Representatives in Jefferson City.
