Bike Advocacy Meeting:Thursday, November 8

Here is an opportunity to hear about efforts within state government to lift Arkansas from our current rank of 50th in "bicycle friendliness" as rated by the league of American Bicyclists. The very fact that the speaker is from the AHTD and is reporting on the efforts of the Governor's Bicycle Advisory Group says that we are making progress, at least in terms of perception, at the state level.
And it's always good to hear from Judge  Buddy Villines!

This from Joe Jacobs:

Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at 6:30pm - 8pm at the Capital Hotel Ballroom.

We'll be hearing about the current status of several cycling/transportation projects in central Arkansas including an announcement from Judge Buddy Villines.

Our featured speaker will be Lorie Tudor of the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.

Lorie will be speaking to us about the Governor's Bicycle Advisory Group and presenting the report that this group of state agencies made to Governor Beebe. Find out what state government is doing to address our recent showing of 50th in the League of American Bicyclist 2012 Bicycle Friendly States ranking. Her presentation will be followed by a short question and answer period.

We'll see you there.
