L.A. County Bike Advocates Nominated For National Awards
Next week, bike activists will gather in Washington D.C. for the National Bike Summit convened by the League of American Bicyclists. On Monday March 7, the national Alliance for Biking and Walking will be hosting their 2016 Advocacy Awards for excellence in the walk and bike advocacy.
Los Angeles, and its L.A. County Bicycle Coalition, has potential for a near sweep of the five national awards. There are five L.A. finalists named, though two of them are in the same category.
Congratulations and thank you to all the nominees, and especially our friends at the LACBC and Santa Monica Spoke:
Advocacy Organization of the Year: Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition
Advocate of the Year: Tamika Butler, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Eric Bruins, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition
Susie Stephens Joyful Enthusiasm Award: Cynthia Rose, Santa Monica Spoke
