The Deschutes County Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee seeks nominations for individuals, businesses and agencies for the annual Big Chainring award.

The award recognizes those that have made significant contributions to improving bicycling and walking conditions in Deschutes County, encouraging children or adults to walk and ride their bikes and making Deschutes County communities healthier and happier.

The committee also awards the Peter Hanson Memorial Award for individuals in the community who have provided outstanding voluntary contributions.

The committee discusses nominees during April and selects winners at its May meeting. The nomination deadline is April 26.
