Good News on a Friday

 It's an exciting time for cyclists with more folks riding and getting involved in cycling. Two quick links to things I think are worth celebrating:
On the local scene, the National Park Service has some big plans near Fort Snelling where the Minnehaha bike trial makes a feeble connection to the Mendota Bridge. Pete had some questions and posted the exchange that brought the news to my attention. Another example of how easy it is to get involved, thanks for posting this Pete!
On the national scene there is a plan nearing completion for a national bicycle network, an interstate system for bikes. CBS put out this story:
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, working with theAdventure Cycling Association and other groups, recently approved a plan, four years in the making, that lays the foundation for the network. Now it's up to each state to create the routes and put up signs.
Pretty cool, don't you think?
