Dear City Council Members,

I sent the following note to the Bicycle Committee several days ago. Mike was a great guy. We need to remember all he contributed to Menlo Park by naming the San Mateo bike/ped bridge in his honor.

Thank you for your support on this small, but important, city council action.

> Menlo Park Bicycle Commission Members:
> Iíve heard thereís an initiative to name the San Mateo Drive bicycle and pedestrian bridge in honor of Mike Harding, who died recently. I strongly support this.
> I worked with Mike on many bicycle advocacy projects, first through the Peninisula Bicycle and Pedestrian Coalition and later through the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. As Iím sure you know, Mike was a tireless advocate as well as being one of the nice guys youíve ever met. Making improvements for bicyclists can be draining at times, but somehow Mike was always positive and optimistic year after year. He was extremely active in Menlo Park serving on the Bicycle Commission and as the cityís representative on the C/CAG Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
> Although itís before I knew him, Iím told he was instrumental in getting the bridge over San Francisquito Creek built. So, it is entirely appropiate that the bridge be named for him. This is one very simple thing we can do to remember a man who did so much for all of us who bike in Menlo Park.
> Please let me know how I can help make this happen.
> Best Regards,
> Mark Eliot
