Only 0.7 percent of federal transportation funds are spent on improving pedestrian facilities.
Our friend, Eberhard Veit, founder of McHenry County Bicycle Advocates, is featured in the Northwest Herald.
Cold is when I grow icicles in my beard,” Veit said. “When the breath freezes in my beard, then it’s cold. But I still ride.”
Veit helped launched the McHenry County Bicycle Advocates in 2008. Its goal is to help motivate the county, towns and townships in the area to be more bike friendly.
