Yesterday was LIVESTRONG Day and I had no idea. LIVESTRONG is the foundation established in 1997 by Lance Armstrong to help and inspire those affected by cancer. Lance is a cancer survivor and 7-time winner of the Tour de France.

From the LIVESTRONG website, LIVESTRONG Day is:

“…the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s one-day initiative to raise awareness and funds for the cancer fight.”

Lance himself attended events in New York, Ohio State University, Denver, and Las Vegas. In addition to these events, many other events were held all over the country in support of LIVESTRONG Day. You can read about these events on the LIVESTRONG Blog.

Sadly, this is another significant bicycle related event that I knew nothing about. Some of you may think I live in the dark ages with no Internet or TV but that’s not the case. I just don’t think the information about these events is getting out in my city. I’m really beginning to think that bicycle awareness in my city is non-existent.

Did you attend a LIVESTRONG Day event? If so, post a comment and tell us about it.

Do you live in the city of Jacksonville, FL? I’d like to hear your opinion on bicycle awarenss in our city.
