CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER BIKES VAN BRUNT & BRUSH CREEK TRAILS IN KANSAS CITY!!!
Yesterday Kansas City Congressman Cleaver participated in a bike ride to showcase the region’s commitment to pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets.
Cycling is often a controversial issue on this blog but this seemed like mostly a white hat event. We liked the photos so we wanted to share . . .

BURNING CALORIES INSTEAD OF FOSSIL FUEL
Congressman Blumenauer joined us on a short bike ride along the Van Brunt and Brush Creek trails in Kansas City. The 3.2-mile Van Brunt trail was completed last year and is a part of a network of on-and off-road bicycle and pedestrian facilities spreading across the entire region.
The Kansas City region’s long-range transportation plan promotes lots of options – active options. They include facilities for bikers and walkers. It’s a great way to get the family out together to enjoy a beautiful day and a wonderful way to stay healthy.

Congressman Blumenauer is a national champion for bicycle and pedestrian issues, and chairs the Democratic Caucus’ Livable Communities Task Force. It was a wonderful chance to showcase our region’s commitment to reducing dependence on oil and increasing good health.
