Handy – Got a technical improvement, a whole new project, an engineering revolution, a nifty streamliner, a modification?
Happy – Found a way to make the rider smile, make the city safer for cycles, a system, a program, an event?
Healthy – Can you get more people riding, more diversity, more engagement with community?
Hot – Can you make bike riders look even better, brighter, more comfortable or cool?

And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
