Bike Walnut Creek Advocacy Ride

From EBBC:

Bike Walnut Creek is planning a bicycle ride which will tour Walnut Creek’s bicycling infrastructure. We would like to see a diverse group of both cyclists and non-cyclists on the ride, mainly consisting of folks who make critical funding, designing, and building decisions for the city. If you have any contacts that fit the bill, please ask them to join us on Saturday, January 26th. We will meet at the WC Library at 10am. The ride will be small, around 12-15 bicyclists. The tentative route is mapped here:

In conjunction with the Advocacy Ride, we will do a survey of bicyclists at the Walnut Creek library also starting at 10am on January 26th. For those parking their bicycles in the racks in front of the 4 entrances, BWC will inquire as to the route they used to get to the library, whether they felt comfortable on the route, whether they think improvements could be done for bicycle access to the library. This is our first public recruiting event and it is a great way to get more passionate bicyclists involved in our cause.

If you would like to volunteer for either of these events, please e-mail BWC. This is our next big event and we need all the volunteers we can muster!
