In the dark slog of February, only the greenest, beardiest hipsters (and some folks peddling through their DUI suspensions) are seen tooling around town on bikes. But with the Phightins taking ground balls in Clearwater and the sun sticking around ’til almost 6pm, it’s not unreasonable to visualize yourself basking in the moderate temps, leaning into the corners and flipping off oblivious motorists.
If you live within the catchment area of Spring Garden or Franvisville, you can participate in a vote. Even if you don’t, both meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to attend to demonstrate community support. Charles Carmalt (the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator) and the Bicycle Coalition will present before the Spring Garden Civic Association. We are scheduled to present after Council President Darrell Clarke, who will be speaking about the proposed casino, AVI, crime cameras, and more.”
The meeting is Wednesday, February 20th, 7pm at St. Andrews Lithuanian Church Hall, 19th & Wallace Street. Also, there’s wine and cheese at 6pm, so you’re a fool to not arrive early.
