Sheldon Brown and Christopher Porter will be awarded for their involvement with cycling by the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition (MassBike) at its Eighth Annual Bike Night celebration on Monday, March 31 from 6-9:00 pm at Inman Square's Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
MassBike will present its Influence Pedaler Awards to Brown (posthumously), for his world-renowned contributions to the art and science of bicycling and to Porter, for his outstanding leadership of MassBike's Metro Boston chapter during a period of great challenges and opportunities. MassBike will also recognize its volunteers with the Big Ring Volunteer Awards.
The evening will celebrate the coming cycling season and the local cycling community and will raise funds with a silent auction and admission tickets. Featured speakers include Tom Henry, bicycling advocacy evangelist and co-owner of Landry's Bicycles, and Chris Zigmont, general manager of bicycling industry innovator Pedro's. All proceeds from Bike Night will benefit MassBike's advocacy efforts.
