Chef Higgins Awarded 2018 NoBell!

The NoBell Award is the most prestigious award given by the Springfield Bicycle Club. This Lifetime Achievement Award has been presented each year since 1982 to an individual in recognition of significant contributions in promoting and supporting bicycling within the Springfield community.
Higgins NoBell Award

This year Chef Michael Higgins has been awarded the 2018 NoBell. Michael has been an advocate for bicycling for many years. He has served on the Mayor’s Bicycling Advisory Council since its inception over ten years ago. He worked with the city to foster several improvements in bicycle facilities including the downtown bicycle racks, 2ndStreet bike lanes and route signage. Chef Higgins was a strong advocate for adoption of the Springfield Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, testifying several times before the city council on the benefits of improving bicycle facilities and safety in the community.  

Higgins also leads the two Midnight Ramble events in May and October, and has  donated trays of baked goods for our Capital City Century event every year. 

Congratulations Chef!
