Bike Action Meeting!

I don’t mean for this webiste to become a blog about all the things I wish I could do, but that’s all I seem to have time to do anymore!

In that spirit, here are a few more interesting events happening in and around our city:

HELP CREATE A BIKE FRIENDLY CITY!
Saturday, January 26, 2008, 11:00 a.m.
Downtown Library on E. Market, McIntire Room

Callng all cyclists and would-be cyclists: we’re collecting data on car/bike run-ins. Help us brainstorm on how to present this information and begin plotting an awesome Bike festival for spring!

We will focus on creating an informal system for reporting and tracking bike-auto collisions in the area. Data collected by police reports are known to significantly under represent the true number of collisions, and the Community Bike Shop and others have noticed considerable disparities between local data and actual bike-auto collisions in the area.

At this meeting, we will seek input on:
• A system for tracking such data informally, to supplement official data;
• A system for making the combined data much more accessible for the public.
