September to be Bicycle Safety Month in C.R.

Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett plans to declare September “Bicycle Safety Month,” says an email posted Friday afternoon on Dave Glandon’s blog.

It also says Corbett plans to participate in the Linn County Mayors’ Bike Ride on Sept. 6.

That’s good news for a couple of reasons:

  • The proclamation – depending, of course, on what it says – will help spread the word that people need to be more concerned than they have been for the safety of others, specifically for the safety of citizens who ride bicycles on our streets.
  • His participation in the ride means at least two of the 17 Linn County mayors plan to participate in the ride named for them.

Two?

That’s how many had said “yes” as of Friday.
