presents Keith with the award for
National Advocate of the Year.
“The staff at the Wisconsin Bike Fed could not be more proud of Keith Holt and the decade of leadership he has provided working to improve bicycling equity” according to Dave Schlabowske, Bike Fed Deputy Director in Milwaukee.
I met Keith through volunteering for Milwaukee county parks in various capacities and very quickly became inspired by his devotion to promoting bicycling in Milwaukee and now call him a friend. His passion covers bicycling in all forms especially as a means of transportation and exercise. Especially in communities of color here, and previously in Chicago before he moved here, Keith has seen bicycling as a means to improve lifestyle through better health and employment made available by using bicycles for transportation.
He is well deserving of this award and we congratulate Keith on his award and dub him a Greater Milwaukee Man.
