Interested In Joinging A Bicycle Coalition?

One result of a 'Bicycle Summit' held in Spokane in mid-February was an expressed desire to explore establishing a regional bicycling coalition. Now a meeting has been scheduled to discuss this proposition, and you're invited.

The meeting is April 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the REI meeting room, 2nd floor, corner of Boone and Monroe. The meeting will be a chance for bicyclists and bike advocates to
determine whether there is adequate support to move forward with this proposition, and if so, to determine what initial directions to take.

The group behind this effort is trying to get a headcount so please RSVP by April 10.
