Eugene Bike News: Last Chance to Help Put Bike Lanes on 24th Avenue!

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a link to Shane MacRhodes' excellent coverage of neighborhood and school groups' efforts to put bike lanes on 24th Avenue.  This road is an important route for kids walking and bicycling to Arts and Technology Academy, Adams Elementary, and Family School.

You have one last chance to meet with city staff to voice your support for this project!  Please speak up in favor of bike lanes on 24th Avenue tonight, from 7-9 pm at the Washington Park Cottage (2025 Washington Street), at the Friendly Area Neighbors Meeting.  That's the little building at the cheese park, to you turophiles out there.  If you can't make it, please consider writing to Mayor Piercy and the city council to give your input about the need for safe, family-friendly bikeways along this school route.

Eugene Mayor and City Council:

You can read more about this project at the Eugene Safe Routes to School website.
