Get Stoked! Velo Fest: Movement of the People

October 28, 2011

I have personally had the honor and privilege of meeting the woman behind this great movement, and let me tell you, when it comes to cyclist advocacy, this woman knows her stuff. Heather Neville, Director of the Velo Fest Community Initiative, has gone to great lengths to organize this cyclist awareness event, and in just a handful of months, she’s collected thousands upon thousands in donations to fund this little shin dig. Wowzers! Teach us a thing or two, lady.

Heather is also on JBC’s side. She came to Jacksonville to sit in on an important city council meeting concerning funding for road infrastructure for cyclists and also got up to the podium to speak before the panel of Councilmen/women and the rest of the crowd. She was clearly knowledgeable about the subject of mobility fees and proved that before the committee. The JBC is looking forward to continued efforts in working with Heather and helping to join forces with St. Johns County.

In the mean time, we’ll happily be promoting Velo Fest here in Duval and hopefully will motivate loads and loads of cyclists to join in on the festivities. So grab your Sharpies and mark your calendars, folks. You’re not going to want to miss this one! Get all your information at www.velofest.org

And check out this awesome info graphic created by the good folks at Troika Studios:
