Advocacy Ride and Lunch - Oct. 3 - Montclair

On Saturday, October 3rd a few of us are organizing an informal lunch meeting and bike ride in Montclair about the future of New Jersey bicycle and pedestrian advocacy. This is the North Jersey edition of this meeting - if it's a success and there's interest, we may organize meetings in south Jersey and the Jersey Shore area. Of course, advocates from anywhere in New Jersey are welcome!

New Jersey has an active community of local bicycle and pedestrian advocates - but we don't talk often enough. Let's get together to talk about these opportunities:
1. Sharing knowledge and sweat equity to be even more effective locally.
2. Working together to plan common campaigns on high priority objectives.
3. Organizing to advocate at the state level for better laws and policies.

Here's the plan:

Ride!
10 am - 11:30 am
Meet at Edgemont Park, 292 Valley Road, Montclair, NJ 07042
This is an easy-paced ride. We will be stopping at a few points along the way to learn how the mayor and citizens of Montclair have been working to make cycling and walking safer, and the challenges they've faced. This will set the stage for discussion about the issues common to all NJ towns. Family members are welcome on the ride, keeping in mind that we will be riding on some busy roads - so trailers and trail-a-bikes will be in order for younger kids.

Lunch and meet!
11:45am
Nauna's Bella Casa, 148 Valley Rd, Montclair, NJ 07042
Discuss the future of bicycle and pedestrian advocacy. Be sure to RSVP so we get enough tables.

Many thanks to Bike Montclair for help with hosting and organizing. RSVP below.
