Congratulations Lauren Tamayo!

Those of you tuned into this summer’s Olympics may have noticed some exciting bike related aspects of the games. If you caught any of the crew events you might have noticed a large contingency of cyclists pedaling along with the rowers. London also boasts quite the bike share program, which was certainly helpful in alleviating some of the motor traffic congestion.

The biggest bit of cycling excitement though, has to be Asheville’s Lauren Tamayo. Lauren will be recognized at the Asheville City Council meeting tomorrow at 5 pm in City Hall. A welcome home reception will follow at Pack’s Tavern. Lauren won her medal in track cycling’s women’s team pursuit. Please consider being at the council meeting on Tuesday, or at the other events to show support for her achievement, and to help highlight the diversity of cycling pursuits in Asheville. Bring your friends, too!

Congratulations Lauren, from Asheville on Bikes!
