Rotary’s cogwheel logo has nothing to do with bicycling. However…

Rotary International and the Northfield Rotary Club‘s logo is a cogwheel (some background info here.) Northfield area bikers like me see more in it than that, especially when I ride across the Peggy Prowe Pedestrian Bridge to the Sechler Park Mountain Bike Trail, opened recently by CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails) where I’m a board member. Thank you, Northfield Rotary, for all you do for bicycling in the area.
