Bike Commuter Night Out
If you live in Lane County and are interested in getting started on a bicycle, or perhaps in bicycling more for transportation, I hope you'll join me at the Bike Commuter Night Out tonight, beginning at 6:30 pm at the Hilyard Community Center. Folks interested in a discussion about women and bicycling may also want to attend: this event features a panel of six women cyclists (including me) who will be speaking about getting around by bike.
Paul Adkins will share a presentation about bicycle commuting. If you don't yet know Paul, he is a great resource for bicycling here in Eugene. He's one of the founders of Kidical Mass, and teaches the GEARs Confident Cycling class (there's one beginning soon). He's also a bicycling activist and a father of four great kids. I hope to feature his family in an interview here soon!
After Paul's presentation, the panelists will discuss obstacles to bicycling, as well as our own successes in overcoming those obstacles.
Hope to see you there!
