Former TAC Member Featured on Comcast Segment

Barb Chamberlain used to be a member of our Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and a big bicycling advocate here in Spokane. Until she moved to the west side of the state last year to take over as Executive Director of the Bicycle Alliance of Washington.

The show "Comcast Newsmakers" checks in with her on how it's going. The video below and a transcript is on the Down to Earth NW blog.

Thanks for sharing this! Such an awesome screen shot the video left--like I'm facing the prospect of dental surgery instead of being really excited about what's happening for bicycling all over the state.

To keep up on what's happening check out the Bicycle Alliance blog: http://bicyclealliance.org/blog-news/

We'd love to have some Spokane stories so drop me a line (barb-at-bicyclealliance.org) if you have something to share.
