Hey Flagstaff Bike Commuters!!

Yesterday we got our official Proclamation from the City of Flagstaff and Mayor Sara Presler with a bunch of “where-as”  declaring this FLAGSTAFF BIKE TO WORK WEEK! We had a great bunch of folks attend the Kick-off ride and we honored Elson Miles with a brick at Heritage Square in recognition of his many and varied contributions to Flagstaff’s cycling culture.

Today has been Bike to School Day! Results are still pending as of this email, but we do know that Marshall Elementary had 203 kids ride to school today, thereby overwhelming their bicycle racks!
