Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon Honored

Congratulations to Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon.

Missouri Bicycle Federation recently presented Attorney General Jay Nixon with its "Distinguished Service to Missouri Bicycling" award in recognition of his efforts on behalf of the state's bicycling community and cycling resources.

Nixon was recognized for his 20 years of support for the Katy Trail State Park, created when Nixon was a state senator in 1987. The Federation also honored Nixon for his role to preserve the MKT bridge at Boonville.

Here is a shot of the MKT from this past summer when Curtis and I took a 50 mile ride with our scout troop. I was daydreaming about the KATY trail the other day while riding to work in the gray despair known as late February. This weekend we're supposed to have sunshine and temperatures in the 60's. In the Kansas City area, March always comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion. Mark my words...
