Jeff Mapes To Be Keynote Speaker at Miami Valley Cycling Summit This Friday

Mostly I'm going to try to keep my news to Mondays or Fridays in the Link-O-Rama, but today's was sort of time-sensitive and I wanted to share it with you.

Friday, August 14th, is the Miami Valley Cycling Summit, part of the local Drive Less Live More campaign, which is exactly what it sounds like. It's being held at the University of Dayton (directions available on the website) and the keynote speaker will be author Jeff Mapes, whose latest book Pedaling Revolution: How Cyclists Are Changing American Cities is getting lots of attention and opening eyes for a lot of people.

The all-day event will feature discussion groups, panels, and lots of camaraderie as the cyclists of the Miami Valley get together to study and discuss what can make their communities better for ourselves, our children, and the future. Join the fun!

People, not speed.
