Cyclists: Time to be an ambassador

A dozen or so people interested in becoming Bicycle Ambassadors for the City of Cedar Rapids showed up at this meeting Tuesday night.

That’s not enough.

To keep the hard-earned momentum going toward making this community more bicycle friendly, in fact as well as in name, more cyclists need to step up. You have another chance on August 17, 6 p.m. at the Public Works Building, 1201 6th St. SW.

Ambassadors will help with two of the five E’s of bicycle friendliness: education and encouragement. The time commitment is minimal, and you’ll get to talk to a lot of people about something you enjoy. How tough can that be?

You’ll probably get a T-shirt out of the deal, too, along with some good karma. That’s how they do it in Montpelier, Mrs. Smith tells me.

Spread the word.
