Cyclist speaking at Cannon Valley Trail on Saturday

William Ostrem from the Northfield Area, known as "The Practical Cyclist," will offer a session Saturday at the Welch Station Access on the Cannon Valley Trail. The Voices of the Valley event also will feature guitarist Brenda Owens.

Ostrem's presentation is designed for people who want to replace car trips with cycling trips or simply travel in a sustainable mode. The session will examine the advantages of cycling, potential obstacles, equipment and strategies, safety issues, and cycling advocacy.

Ostrem, a "practical cyclist" for over 20 years, has been the chairman of Northfield-area task force on non-motorized transportation for two years. There will be the option of taking a ride with Ostrem afterwards.
