Either write something worth reading or do something worthy of writing. - Ben Franklin
In the early 1900's there were a few European women who were bicyclists, but their skill was seen as more like a circus act, and people believed that they were possessed by the devil, or considered to be amoral and certainly were not normal wholesome women.
The luncheon was a proud moment for the Nebraska Delegation. Andy Clarke, Executive Director of the League of American Bicyclists, announced the Bike Friendly Business awards. He said he wasn't going to take the time to mention every business by name, but he did want to recognize 3 distinct "clusters" of designees ... Omaha being one of those. He was very kind in his comments about Omaha and the work we are all doing, and I believe we were the city with the most awards given. When we had our photo taken with Andy, we told him to expect many more to come, at which point, we were challenged to beat out Milwaukee as the city with the most awards. It's ON.
