Subject: My Hurricane Story -- Evacuee rides bike to Baton Rouge
Story: Stev Godfrey, president of Higher Flyers handbill distribution service in New Orleans, rode his bike to Baton Rouge to escape Hurricne Katrina. Godfrey, who does not drive a car, is a bicycle advocate and community organizer and activist. His only available means of escaping the city before the hurricane was via his bicycle. He escaped sometime Sunday morning and arrived in Baton Rouge Sunday night. For those of us who know him, we are not only overjoyed by his safe evacuation, but are thoroughly insprired by his courage, his perserverance, and his can do attitude. We need more like him. E would be proud...
