In the summer of 2009 he played a small part in the “VELO-CITY: Vancouver & the Bicycle Revolution” exhibit at the Planetarium Museum in Kitsilano.  He would like to thank Propellor Design members Pamela Goddard, Nick Rust, and Toby Barratt for giving him the honor by placing a photo of him among the entire great riders of our age.  One of the four photos was used in Bicycle Revolution exhibit at the Museum in Kitsilano.
