To all Anchorage bicyclists. All of our groundwork has succeeded. We’re hearing the Bicycle Plan has 100% assembly and mayoral support, and is expected to pass on Tuesday night. Therefore, it’s absolutely critical that those of us showing up at the Tuesday assembly meeting respectfully keep quiet and just let the assembly vote. The sooner they can vote on it, w/o any interruptions from enthusiastic cyclists, the sooner we will have our Bicycle Plan.
Since we have certainty in the Bicycle Plan passing on Tuesday, it’s essential that we respect the decorum and simply let the vote take place. Please, refrain the urge to speak at the meeting. The work has already been done.
This Saturday, March 6, re-channel that energy and blow off all your excitement at the BCA Winter Bike Fest fundraiser. 6:30-8:30 pm at BP Energy Bldg. Let’s all bask in the glory.
Wednesday, Feb. 24th, from 2:00-3:00pm on Hometown, Alaska, guests Lori Schanche and Brian Litmans will join host Kathleen McCoy to explain the plan, how it would unfold over time, and how it stacks up to evolving bicycle use in other cities, including other snowy ones.
The Bike Plan is a critical planning element to make Anchorage more bicycle-friendly and livable. Please call in and let us know why the Anchorage Bicycle Plan and bicycle transportation, in general, is important to you.
