|Bike Safety Gets An Enthusiastic Green Light In Minneapolis |
|Published on April 11, 2013||Email To Friend Print Version
Last month at the National Bike Summit retiring U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced that one of the last things on his agenda will be to hold a series of bicycle safety summits. The summits will focus on identifying innovative ideas for improving bicycle safety. The first will be this week in Tampa, Florida and the second will be April 29, here in Minneapolis.
Individuals, organizations and agencies throughout the upper Midwest have been invited. Here in Minneapolis, the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota (BikeMN) will be participating and presenting some of their programs.
Secretary LaHood's recent blog post
on the subject says: "After all, whether you're driving a tractor-trailer, sitting in the back seat of a minivan, or ped
aling a bike, the road safety you enjoy shouldn't depend on the number of wheels you're riding on."
The City of Minneapolis and MnDOT have been working with staff at U.S. DOT to bring the summit together on short notice. BikeMN is looking forward to working with Secretary LaHood on this important initiative. Sign up
