Making it Safer & Easier to Bicycle in Cannon Falls

Bicycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine; it's fun and a great way to travel around our communities.  Cycling also saves you money, helps the environment and can bring money into our communities.  If you are interested in helping improve the Cannon Falls area so more children can bike to and from school, more families can bike to and from community destinations and more residents and visitors bike to community businesses, please come to our initial meeting on Thursday, April 12th at 6:00 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall.  For more information, contact David Anderson at 651-385-6148 or by email at david.anderson@co.goodhue.mn.us
