Here are the Tweets we were hap­py to see in our stream this past week:

- From Bike Port­land, a won­der­ful sto­ry about a 7‑year-old who start­ed a fundrais­er to pro­vide hel­mets for the lit­tlest cyclists in need.

Amgen Tour adds a wom­en’s time tri­al. Anoth­er step in sup­port of women cyclists. Thanks to Cycling News Feed for bring­ing us that story.

- And the folks at Wend Mag­a­zine turned us on to this cool new Park­Find­er app.

That should def­i­nite­ly come in handy this week (4/16–4/24) dur­ing Nation­al Park Week when admis­sion to all U.S. Nation­al Parks is free.

 

 

Nation­al Park Week 2011 kicks off tomor­row. From April 16th to April 24th, admis­sion to all 394 U.S. nation­al parks will be free! Their theme for this year is Healthy Peo­ple, Health Parks, designed to show the con­nec­tion between a healthy lifestyle and a health envi­ron­ment and how nation­al parks play a role.

Dur­ing the week, park part­ners will offer dis­counts on food, lodg­ing, tours and sou­venirs and com­mu­ni­ties near the nation­al parks are offer­ing up deals as well.
