If you didn't get your tickets yet, you'd better do so before you finish reading this blog post.
Rumor has it that the NJ Bicycle Summit is just about sold out of its 130 tickets with only 8 spots remaining. Also note that the deadline for registration is February 14th which is less than a week away and even if there are spaces available there will be NO "day of event" registration.
The fact that the Bicycle Coalition of New Jersey could so easily fill this inaugural event's 130 openings is a testament to the pent-up need and latent demand for better cycling infrastructure and policies in New Jersey. Politicians, take note!
I know that I speak for many when I say that I hope this event is the kick-off of a very strong, vocal and well organized bicycle AND PEDESTRIAN advocacy campaign by the Bicycle Coalition of New Jersey and by all the local groups and clubs already in existence.
