THE PERSON

1989-sur-le-podium-de-ce-tour-de-france-89-le-contraste-est

Although Laurent Fignon (above left) is our favorite rider; we are looking more for the temperament displayed in young LeMond (above right).  M. Fignon was brilliant and exciting, he was also temperamental and vain.

LeMond smiled through a lot of adversity, and let’s not forget who won in ’89.

Look, we understand that the list above is pretty long, and very varied, and don’t expect one person to be experienced in all.  That’s where the Old School Work Ethic kicks in.

Send a short statement of why you want the job along with C.V. to [email protected]

On May 1, 2020, the City of Dunwoody’s new Vulnerable Road User (“VRU”) ordinance will take effect, the first such law to be enacted anywhere in the State of Georgia.  Hopefully neighboring municipalities like Sandy Springs, Roswell and Chamblee will follow suit, and more importantly, the State of Georgia.   VRU laws recognize and prioritize […]

Not long ago, I published a post highlighting the great efforts being made by the co-chairs of the Saint Paul Bicycle Coalition. One of the co-chairs, Andy Singer, has garnered attention not just for his work for the Coalition but for his policy-based cartoons.  I asked Andy if he’d oblige to another interview to highlight […]
