The BTA‘s Alice B. Toeclips Awards are like the Oscars for the Oregon bike scene, and they just put out the call for nominees. Here’s the info:

“It’s time once again for all good cyclists to heed the call and help us build up to the big bang – by nominating your biking heroes for one of Alice awards!

Who in your community – an individual, business, government agency or group – has provided inspiration to cyclists, made biking safer or easier, or helped make bikes a part of the fabric of your community? Alice wants to know – who are your bike heroes?”

Nominations are due on January 10th, 2006. Nominate online or contact Brita at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance: 503.226.0676 x13 or

This town is so full of bike heroes that I’d hate to be the one to decide who gets the award. I just hope I get invited to the party…maybe I’ll even wear a tie.
