Glenn Receives Award for Bicycle Safety
NASA's Glenn Research Center (GRC), Cleveland, recently received the Cyclist Friendly Communities Award from the Ohio Bicycle Federation. Glenn was recognized for its activities to create an environment promoting safe, effective cycling.

"Safety is the number one priority at NASA, and we are very proud to be recognized for promoting bicycle safety among our Glenn family," said Glenn Director of Safety and Mission Assurance Vernon W. Wessel.

The award was developed to encourage communities to promote education about bicycle operation and to treat cyclists fairly. Glenn is known for its extensive and long-lasting effort in teaching and encouraging best cycling practices.

The GRC Organization for Bicycle Information, Knowledge, and Expertise (GO-BIKE) encourages employees to use the best and safest cycling practices. Educational information is available to them via brochures, videos and bicycle driving clinics. The organization also has sponsored a Road-1 class, the standard in bicycle education.

Glenn is the second recipient of the award. The first was the city of Vandalia, near Dayton.
