“What an exciting time of the year,” said Edmond Bicycle Committee Staff Liaison Jan Fees. “Nationwide, bicycling is growing in popularity for both recreation and for personal transportation. In communities across the nation, there is a growing need and responsibility to provide options that give people the opportunity to bike, to bike more often, to bike to more places, and to make travel on roads safe for all road users.”
