There are just a few days left to nominate your bike hero for an Alice Award. The annual Alice Awards and Auction event hosted by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance is always a good time and it's also a time to recognize the work of dedicated advocates from throughout Oregon.
The deadline to nominate your bike hero is this Saturday (1/22). The BTA will select three winners (over 30 people were nominated last year) and the announcement will be made at the big gala event on April 23rd.
This year, the BTA has announced a new "People's Choice" award that will be given to the nominee who gets the most votes from the public. Voting for the People's Choice award will open January 23rd and will run through February 19th.
Do you have a bike hero? There are a lot of people in this community who go above and beyond the call of duty to make bicycling better in our state. If you know of such a person, take a few minutes to nominate them. More details here.
