The local tri-weekly newspaper, The Mountaineer, just brought on-line their new website. Featured in this past Monday’s edition was a story that details the efforts made by our local bicycle advisory committee, BicycleHaywoodNC.

Stina Sieg, a new reporter for the Mountaineer and new resident of Haywood County, met with members of the Council on 3 occasions including accompanying us on two rides as she took photos for the story. The story focuses on the origins of our Council, the goals of the councils, and some personal stories of the cyclists.

Check out the full story at the on-line edition of The Mountaineer.

Until later,

I enjoyed reading the article. It makes sense to me. Thanks for sharing. --jim

The humorous part of the story was the misspelling of the Wood-man's name as Moody. Now, where ever he goes in town, he's greeted with "Hey, Moody!" :)

Corrections were printed in today's edition for his name and for the errant blog address given at the end.
