The coworker who pedals to the office each day. A neighbor who loads up her bags and basket at the weekly farmers market. The couple that rides to dinner every Saturday night. Many people know at least one dedicated bike commuter.
“The time has come,” says Aileen Carroll, Outreach Director at Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, “to shine a little light on the object of your bike commute inspiration by nominating her or him as Bike Commuter of the Year 2013!”
The SCBC is accepting nominations for these everyday cycling superheroes. This annual award recognizes one person who, by being a dedicated transportation rider, inspires others to give bike commuting a try.
To nominate a bike commuter now by visiting www.youcanbikethere.com/bcoy. Nominations are open until April 22.
SCBC will announce the Bike Commuter of the Year on May 1, the first day of National Bike Month, in time to inspire others to give bike commuting a try on Bike to Work Day on May 9.
